Shostakovich: The String Quartets (5CD Set)

The multi-Grammy Award®-winning Emerson String Quartet has, since its founding in 1976, bestrode the classical music world as one of the most dynamic and polished chamber ensembles. To celebrate their legacy, Deutsche Grammophon repackages their recording of the complete Shostakovich String Quartets in a new 5-CD capbox.

Winner of two Grammy® Awards: Best Chamber Music Performance (2000) & Best Classical Music Performance (2000) and one Gramophone Award (2000: Quartets Nos. 1–15), Gramophone magazine heralded the cycle with the proclamation, “This, surely, is a Shostakovich cycle for the 21st century”.
