Format: Audio CD
I've enjoyed this cd from the Eder Qrt for over ten years and the quality of playing and interpretive depth matches many recordings by more famous Qrts such as the Borodins (EMI/Virgin), Emersons (DG) and Fitzwilliams (Decca) : a self recommending bargain basement recording of 3 key Shostakovich quartets. the Eight quartet is justifiably famous in particular. start perhaps with DSCH's Qrt no.1 as its the most approachable then the justifiably famous, dark yet emotionally powerful no.8 then the even darker no.9 .

the entire Eder Qrt/naxos series of all 15 quartets is very good indeed and a great inexpensive place to start exploring Shostakovich's remarkable quartet cyle. possibly closely followed by the Borodins + the Fitzwilliam Qrt box sets. buy any of these with total confidence. post-classical,austere,melancholic yet undeniably deeply moving works and empathetic performances here by the Eder Qrt.

Addendum - i would strongly recommend Benjamin Britten's equally marvellous + huanted,yet sophisticated string quartets 1- 3. Both composers met several times + are said to have influenced each other in their work.

This CD contains three String Quartets by Dimitri Shostakovich, Nos 1,8 and 9, of the fifteen he composed. Performed by the Hungarian Quartet, the Eders and recorded in 1994.
I can only agree with other reviewers who have praised this CD. The playing is excellent and very natural. The sound is very good and the works themselves are powerful and expressive. Very Shostakovich !
I shall be seeking out other volumes in this series by the Eders as I like their approach: true to the music, full of feeling without distortion and making sense of the work without undue "interpretation" .
It is easy to recommend this CD.

Needed this for a Holocaust Memorial Service I was conducting - it really worked, so atmospheric when used with multi-media. Great!
