"Full of nostalgic feeling, the music cries out for the committed kind of playing it receives here." - The Toronto Star

Two outstanding string quartets: Benjamin Britten's String Quartet No. 3, Op. 94. His third string quartet, and one of his last major works, performed by the Penderecki String Quartet.

Dmitri Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 3 in F. Major, Op. 73. Completed in 1946, the String Quartet No.3 is the first that might be thought of as "symphonic" in scope.
