Dmitri Shostakovich\r\n\r\nString Quartet No. 2 in A major, Op. 68 (1944)\r\n\r\nrecorded c. late 1950s (?)\r\n\r\nString Quartet No. 5 in B flat major, Op. 92 (1952)\r\n\r\nrecorded c. early or mid-1950s (?)\r\n\r\nString Quartet No. 6 in G major, Op. 101 (1956)\r\n\r\nrecorded 1956 (?)\r\n\r\nThe Beethoven Quartet\r\n\r\nDmitri Tsyganov, 1st Violin\r\nVasili Shirinsky, 2nd Violin\r\nVadim Borisovsky, Viola\r\nSergei Shirinsky, Cello\r\n\r\nThese recordings are the precise ones omitted from the four-CD set of the Beethoven Quartet performing Shostakovich by Melodya - presumably because their sound didn't fit the rubric post-1960-stereo-effect. The performances themselves, on the other hand, are breathtaking and make one tend to forget other performances of these works from other ensembles. A reissue label has published these recordings along with their companions (versions I have yet to hear... when I run out of LPs to buy). These three 10-inch discs are likely original issues and were obtained in mint condition.\r\n\r\nLP transfers of material issued by the Aprevsky Record Factory (USSR).\r\n\r\nIncludes original sleeves & labels.
