Strong and flexible in the quartet literature but equally powerful and adaptive in other chamber combinations, the St. Petersburg String Quartet demonstrates its versatility with pianist Igor Uriash on this 2004 disc from Hyperion. The Piano Quintet in G minor provides an opportunity for the full quartet to display its receptivity to a fifth partner, and Uriash is evenly matched by the strings in richness of tone, emotional depth, and a genuine spirit of cooperation. Fully assured in the String Quartet No. 1 in C major, the quartet plays off the work's tension between classical poise and modernist irony, a hallmark of Shostakovich's expression in many later works.
Petersburg String Quartet. Primary Artist, String Quartet.
The Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, for violin, cello and piano, Op. 67, by Dmitri Shostakovich was written in 1944, in the midst of World War II. The composition was dedicated to Shostakovich's good friend, Ivan Sollertinsky, a Russian polymath and avid musician, who had recently died at age 41. The work received its premiere in Leningrad on 14 November 1944. The piece consists of four movements, with a complete performance running 25 to 27 minutes.
Shostakovich: String Quartet N., Piano Quintet, Piano Trio N. Audio CD. Dmitry Shostakovich. As it happens, I’ve had the pleasure of listening to a more recent disc featuring both the Trio and Quintet from the St. Petersburg Quartet joined by pianist Igor Uryash (on Hyperion) that is on an entirely higher level than this Borodin recording. Uryash and the St. Petersburg string players in particular provide a wonderful and memorable version of the 2nd Trio, fully realizing the music’s ghoul-like atmosphere, and carefully bringing out the timbral effects so important to Shostakovich, timbral effects which are ignored by the Borodin Trio
St Petersburg String Quartet, Igor Uryash (piano) More. This isn't the first CD to group Shostakovich's two piano trios with his late Romances to poems by Alexander Blok but, for the freshness and excellence in every aspect of performance and production, it would be my pick’ (Gramophone). One might be forgiven for wondering whether the market for this particular repertory has already reached saturation point. Shostakovich, who had been working on his second Piano Trio since December, decided to dedicate it to Sollertinsky, following in a tradition of elegiac Russian piano trios-Tchaikovsky had written his in memory of Nikolai Rubinstein, Rachmaninov had followed with a trio in memory of Tchaikovsky. But the music itself makes it clear that Shostakovich intended a memorial far beyond the individual human being who was his friend.
