Brilliant classics have issued a 27 CD set of Shostakovich which includes the Barshai symphony and Rubio quartet recordings among others.

Wow! I have both the Barshai and Rubio recordings. This is a wonderful, inexpensive opportunity for those bereft of fine Shostakovich performances.

It is interesting to observe that since BRILLIANT has become such a popular label among collectors that they have seriously cleaned up much of their technical work. Some of the early big-box productions were poorly remastered, but now everything is vastly improved. Even the artwork is looking 100% better.

I would be excited but last fall I got the string quartets. Don't want to buy them again. And there's no price on the set.
