Alexander String Quartet 2
Alexander String Quartet 2 will be performing Shostakovich’s “Quartet No. 9” and Shostakovich’s “Quartet No. 10.”
The musical career of Dmitri Shostakovich mirrored exactly the rise and history of the Soviet Union from 1917 to 1975. He entered the Petrograd Conservatory at the very end of the Tsarist era; he witnessed the Revolution and began his career during Lenin’s rule; he was nearly purged twice by Stalin; he flourished under Khrushchev and died while Brezhnev was in power.
