Emerson Quartet -- Shostakovich, String Quartet 3, Mvmt 3

Found at Conversational Reading:

Shostakovich's Third String Quartet has always been one of my favorites of his, and this is a stirring passage from the third movement. It's being played here by the Emerson String Quartet, which is a wonderful ensemble. If you're into Shostakovich, string quartets, or just plain good music, I highly recommend listening to Emerson's recording of all 15 of Shostakovich's quartets. These are very good recordings, and it's criminal that they'll only set you back $24.
