Russia's greatest string quartet, with the blessing of Russia's finest – free classical download #8

The Valentin Berlinsky Quartet, based in Switzerland, takes its name from the revered cellist of the Borodin Quartet, which gave the first performances of many of Dmitri Shostakovich’s epic set of 15. That is some pedigree.

Our free download today is the Allegro-Allegretto of the seventh quartet, a historic work in a thrilling performance to be released next month. Enjoy here.

  • Many thanks for these two excellent tracks. They’ve really captured the spirit of Shostakovich, “thrilling” for sure. I’m looking forward to the rest of the CD and finding out more about this Valentin Berlinsky Quartet.
