Booklet
The Borodin Quartet has been graced by range of  Soviet and then Russian soloists since its creation in 1945 – when it was started by Rudolf Barshai and Rostropovich. The cellist who promptly replaced Rostropovich when the latter's career took off remained in post from 1946 to 2007, which is surely a record. During this time, while some left for "the West", and others had health problems, of which none died, Borodin's spirit continued to reign over the ensemble. Today, the quartet is still plugging away with its impressive international career, here is their most recent recording, produced between 2015 and 2018, it is made up of fifteen quartet compositions by Shostakovich. The Borodin Quartet has always had an excellent rapport with Shostakovich, to the point of playing all his work as it was composed. From his first string quartet piece in 1938 to the end of his life in 1974, it was in string quartet format that Shostakovich really laid his soul bare. Even the most perfidious of Communist officials were unable to find any kind of political allusion in this music... The Borodin Quartet supplement their programme with various other pieces, such as the superb Quintet with Piano and music from the film Girl Friends, made up of 23 pieces of which seven were written for string quartet (performed here), some with piano and trumpet and some with other extraordinary sonary innovations. It is an album of great beauty, and a must-buy for any Shostakovichophiles. © SM/Qobuz
