Shostakovich: Chamber Symphony Op. 73s, Symphony for Strings Op. 118a

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
An eminent violist and conductor, Rudolf Barshai was responsible
for five transcriptions of Shostakovich’s String Quartets and this
recording completes the sequence with the Third and Tenth (Volume
1 is on 8.573466). Barshai recast String Quartet No. 3 as a chamber
symphony for strings and woodwind, the latter adding a sense of
foreboding to the texture and engaging in whimsical dialogues during
a work full of terseness and piercing power. Fashioning a Symphony
for Strings from the Tenth Quartet soon after its première, Barshai
graphically charts its movement from innocence lost and then
tentatively regained.
