The Shostakovich 6th

06/03/11 8:00AM

The Shostakovich 6th String Quartet is a light-hearted, melodic work - making it stand apart in character and spirit from the other fourteen he wrote. We'll listen to the 6th this morning, and talk about a new book that explores all of the Shostakovich Quartets.
