Miaskovsky CD Review

Nikolai MIASKOVSKY

String Quartet No.13 in A minor, op.86

Dmitri SHOSTAKOVICH

String Quartet No.1 in C, op.49

String Quartet No.8 in C minor, op.110

NIMBUS NI 5827

...So here we have three Soviet Quartets, each exploring different lands, each giving much satisfaction in the journey we take with them, and each receiving performances of superlative stature...  Their intensity, poetry, insight and magnificent musicianship is obvious in every bar of these works. Their work is not to be missed and neither is this excellent disk.
