Schnittke's Piano Quintet and Shostakovich's final composition, the 15th String Quartet: crucially important works from the early 1970s whose emphasis on self-expression seems to prefigure an entire landscape of post-Soviet music. Superbly interpreted by the always adventurous Keller Quartett - joined by Alexei Lubimov for the Schnittke.
