      Shostakovich: String Quartet No 14 in F-sharp major, Op 142: III, Allegretto (8:18)

      Pacifica Quartet

      This is the final installment in the Pacifica Quartet’s highly anticipated and already highly acclaimed four-volume CD survey of the complete Shostakovich
      string quartets. This volume features Shostakovich’s String Quartets Nos 13–15 from the 1970s. They are paired with Schnittke’s allusive homage, String Quartet No 3, written in 1983. It’s a work full of quotation including a 12-tone row transposed from a theme by Shostakovich, whose influence was felt throughout Schnittke’s career.
