About This Performance

For 70 years, Russia’s Borodin Quartet has been celebrated for its insight and authority in the chamber music repertoire–particularly that of Shostakovich, with whom the Borodin’s founding members studied in 1940s Moscow. This direct line to the Russian master will surely add a dash of frisson to the Borodin’s performance of the Eighth, as will the addition of former Emerson Quartet cellist David Finckel for Schubert’s utterly sublime Cello Quintet.

Borodin: Quartet No. 2
Shostakovich: Quartet No. 8, Op. 110
Schubert: String Quintet in C Major, D. 956
