Review By Joe Milicia,Enjoy the Music,July 2013

The third installment of Cedille’s Shostakovich series with the Pacifica Quartet offers us what we have come to expect: revelatory performances of Shostakovich quartets in superb sound…

The Pacifica Quartet once again prove to be compelling interpreters, with their warmth of tone and alertness to drops and rises of emotional temperature, as well as to the quartets’ internal dramas of solo players striking out from the ensemble…and becoming re-absorbed in the whole.


Review By Robert Moon,Audiophile Audition,June 2013

The previous two releases in this series have been superb, and this release continues the high level of recording and performing excellence that makes the Pacifica Quartet’s renditions of Shostakovich’s quartets one of the best available today.

The Pacifica Quartet plays these works like the symphonic quartets they are: emotionally expressive, brilliantly executed with a wide, close but reverberant soundstage that communicates the feelings in the music. I can’t wait for their final installation in this series. © Audiophile Audition Read complete review
