Catalogue No: ONYX4051

The second recording for ONYX from one of the great string quartets of our time. Borodin's precocious first quartet is coupled with the imposing 13th quartet by Myaskovsky, a composer who is slowly emerging from the shadow cast by Shostakovich and Prokofiev. His is a major voice in 20th - century Russian music from the Soviet period.
