Description: No one will be surprised to find the towering shadow of you-know-who behind these quartets and there is evidence that Boris showed his Third of 1967 (a mono-thematic work of six slow movements), to Shostakovich, who used the same idea in his Quartet No. 15. The First (1954) is the sunniest, the Second (1961) also monothematic, while the final three (1972, 1974 and 1976, the last two in single-movement form) form a kind of triad with their obsession with strong lyrical flow interrupted by harsh and severe interjections. 2 CDs. Ilya Ioff, Elena Raskova (violins), Lydia Kovalenko (viola), Alexei Massarsky (cello).
