SHOSTAKOVICH: through the lens of the string quartet

In a unique concept, Flinders Quartet explores Shostakovich’s life through a prism of his string quartets. Inspired by Wendy Lesser’s book “Music for Silenced Voices”, this program will explore the life of Shostakovich through selections from his fifteen string quartets.
