Jerusalem String Quartet
BRUSSELS, BELGIUM  •  Royal Brussels Conservatory  •  23 - 26 April 2014
Shostakovich String Quartets

Jerusalem String Quartet

Composed over a period of more than three decades from his early thirties to his penultimate year, the quartets therfore document the Soviet composer's  creative life.  More uniform than the symphonies, by virtue of their consistent scoring, and more private, the quartets have been generally understood as autobiographical and indeed, Shostakovich (b. 1906 - d. 1975) made this explicit in the case of his Eighth Quartet (1960), in which he made frequent use of his musical monogram DSCH (i.e. DE flatCB) and quoted from several of his own works.
