Description: If you missed this series when I helped issue it on Russian Disc 14 years ago, this will probably be your only chance to get it. An odd collection by the composer, he coupled a ferociously difficult A minor work (two contemporary quartets were unable to play it) and a shorter, easier to play C minor piece, both written in 1930, with an early quartet written at conservatory in 1911. Taneyev Quartet.
