ALEXANDER BORODIN - STRING QUARTETS 1 & 2 - BORODIN STRING QUARTET | Melodiya MELCD1000942

Russian quartets performed by a russian quartet -- A better combination does not exist. These quartets recorded in 1958 and 1965 are perfect examples of elegance and charm, with a touch of rustic folklore, performed by an ensemble in their prime. The now famous and delightful slow movement of the Quartet No. 2 is played here with impeccable taste.
