Synopsis

Product Description
This is the acclaimed Borodin String Quartet s second recording for Onyx, and features three works by three great Russian composers. Borodin s remarkable first quartet, with its references to Beethoven s Op.131, is a rich, full-blooded work; an opulent feast of lyricism and color. It is coupled with Stravinsky s wonderfully concise Concertino of 1920 and Myaskovsky s epic 13th quartet. The Borodin Quartet has been at the very center of the chamber music world for over 60 years, and has seen several changes in personnel during this period. This recording marks the debut of the group s new cellist Vladimir Balshin who replaces Valentin Berlinsky.
