And here is the place to start. The writers of the liner notes are keen to make sure we are clear about their negative view of the Soviet seven decades. Don't let that put you off. A full and genuine reconsideration of the whole seventy-year experience is about due, and the Pacifica Quartet's account of chamber music that accompanied work of a more public kind (such as Shostakovich's symphonies, obviously) is a terrific place to start. The set should be a worthy rival or companion of any other you might have of the Shostakovich quartets. The one other piece by another major but (for me) less well known composer on each volume makes a worthwhile plus.
