Septura's third release for Naxos takes on the most venerated chamber music medium – the string quartet – and one of the most iconic works of their repertoire: Shostakovich's 8th String Quartet. Written in just 3 days in the ruins of post-war Dresden in 1960, the piece was dedicated "to the victims of fascism and war". This footage is from Septura's recording sessions, and features the dramatic second movement.
