Shostakovich: String Quartet No. 7 in F sharp minor Op. 108, String Quartet No. 8 in C minor Op 110, Piano Quintet in G minor Op. 57

Evgeni Koroliov (piano)
Pražák Quartet


Certainly the most intense chamber programme that might be dedicated to the joint memory of Sviatoslav Richter and Dmitri Shostakovich: the Quintet, which the composer played on tour with the Beethoven Quartet in the 1940s Soviet Union—and frequently programmed, with the Pražaks, by Evgeni Koroliov, one of the rare Russian pianists who can pride himself on being a direct descendant of Richter in the Russian repertoire and Bach—, coupled with the 1960 quartets: Nos. 7, Op.108, a funereal divertimento dedicated to Nina Vassilievna († 1954), and 8, Op.110, a vigorous protestation perhaps in reaction to the sight of a destroyed Dresden but especially in memory of the massacre perpetrated by Bolshevism and the war.
