The Rasumowsky Quartet achieved international attention for the recordings of all fifteen string quartets by Dmitri Shostakovich in cooperation with the Saarland Radio on the occasion of the 100th birthday of the composer. It appeared in the summer of 2006 in collaboration with Oehms Classics label in Munich and was enthusiastically received. Maxim Shostakovich, pianist and conductor, one of the most important interpreters of his father’s works, counts the new recording as “one of the best recordings of his father’s music.” The magazine Der Spiegel speaks of “the amazing temptation and the compelling interplay” of an “anniversary event”.
