Dmitri Shostakovich: String Quartet No.8 Op.110 (Parts)

Books | String Quartet

Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes
Format: Sheet Music | Parts
Set of parts for Shostakovich's String Quartet No.8 from Opus 110. This piece was written for and dedicated to the 'victims of Fascism' following a trip to Dresden. There are many recognisable themes in the piece including the Cello Concerto No. 1 and a little known tune from his opera Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk. This melody had itself been suppressed by official Soviet condemnation, many critics believe that in this piece Shostakovich is also portraying himself as a victim of Facism and tyranny.

        Wonderful music, played at a training course and pleased we all got to the end! The second movement is unforgetable.
