László Fenyő, in-demand cellist and professor at the University of Music Karlsruhe, is a regular guest of the Liszt Academy: in previous years we have heard him in the company of Ilona Prunyi, Vilmos Oláh, Jiyeong Mun and artists of Festival Academy, whereas this time he is a guest of Borodin Quartet in Franz Schubert’s evergreen String Quintet in C major. The quartet, formed in 1945 and rated as setting a benchmark in the world’s string quartet culture, are one of the most experienced exponents of the Russian string tradition. Thus it comes as no surprise to find they are also playing the final string quartet by Shostakovich. The composer penned the work in 1974, a year before his death; his good friend Kurt Sanderling considered that Shostakovich wrote his own epitaph in the quartet.
