For one thing, there are two more quartets; the earlier cycle stops with 13 because Shostakovich hadn't gotten any further yet. For another thing, the playing is more emotional; the earlier cycle is violently expressive, but the later cycle has more humanity. For yet another thing, the recorded sound of the later cycle is more aggressive than the earlier cycle with more highs, more lows, and much more presence. And as interpretations, the later Borodin cycle is more: more anguished, more haunted, more lamenting, more monumental, more powerful, and perhaps even more deeply moving

Dmitri Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 8 in C minor, Op. 110, was written in three days (12–14 July 1960). The piece was written shortly after two traumatic events in the life of the composer: the first presentation of debilitating muscular weakness that would eventually be diagnosed as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and his reluctant joining of the Communist Party

The Borodin Quartet has a long history with Shostakovich: the composer himself would consult with the Quartet, which would perform almost all of his works personally to receive his supervision and advice. Now, 70 years later, the quartet members come from a new generation but have remained true to their roots and to the artistic excellence and integrity that have always been a hallmark of this astonishing ensemble. This album is the first volume in a Shostakovich cycle from the new era Borodin Quartet. 96 kHz, 24-bit PCM – Decca/London Studio Masters
