Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

The Third Quartet is a very large, impressive work in five movements that begins with one of those innocent-sounding dance tunes of which Shostakovich was a master--the type of theme that immediately loses its musical virginity, and spends the rest of the movement trying to recapture its freshness and simplicity. The Fifth Quartet--widely considered to be one of the finest in the set--has three large movements, each almost exactly 10 minutes in length. It's a superbly balanced and eloquently argued piece of chamber music. These quartets really reward serious listening, and this excellent series allows you to take the plunge at a very modest price. --David Hurwitz

This is the first recording of Shostakovich's string quartets I've ever heard, and it remains one of my favorites. The quality of the music and the performances were enough that it immediately drew me into this music I knew nothing about, enough to make it seem familiar. Even though I've heard no other recording of these quartets, it's not hard to determine that these are first rate, with flawless performances doubled by their strong conviction that occasionally takes away the breath.

This is the only disc in the Eder Quartet's Shostakovich series that earned neither a Penguin three star nor a BBC five star rating. The Eder Quartet plays nicely but both a wider range of dynamics and sharper attacks are needed for Shostakovich's #3. The Fitzwilliam Quartet provides an instructive comparison. I have no such reservations about the Eder's performance of #5.

If you like chamber music and Shostakovich or you dont know his music, the quartets are great-melodic, rhythmic not hard to listen to.

The price was right and delivery very fast.
