The Pacifica Quartet continues its inventive CD cycle of Dmitri Shostakovich's complete string quartets on Cedille Records with a new highly anticipated album that pairs the composer's late quartets with one by Mieczyslaw Weinberg. The third in a four-part series of studio recordings that launched in late 2011, The Soviet Experience Vol. III: String Quartets by Dmitri Shostakovich and his Contemporaries offers Shostakovich's String Quartets Nos. 9-12. The album is due to be released worldwide in March 2013.
The Pacifica Quartet will head down under in April 2013 for a four-concert and teaching residency at the Musica Viva Festival in Sydney, Australia. At the festival, the Pacifica will perform works by Shostakovich, Mendelssohn, and Mozart. Click here for more information.
The Pacifica Quartet will embark on their next European tour in May and June, 2013. They will perform in the cities of Innsbruck, Vienna, London (Wigmore Hall), Bologna, and Bordeaux on this tour. For more information, visit their schedule page.
