EDITOR'S CORNER, continued from page 10 crew on the way to the Festival of Flanders to record the ensemble got stuck in roadplocks created by protesting truck drivers and missed the show. Undaunted by the missed opportunity the quartet decided to remount the concert for an invited audience in Mullem. The results were so satisfactory that they decided to record the whole Shostakovich cycle in this fashion. To my ears, after initial listenings over the past week, the Rubio has come up with a near perfect solution: a recording-quality venue ensuring exceptional sound, and an attentive and well-behaved audience spurring the players on to their best performa_nces with none (or few) of the annoyances often included in live recordings. Of course such a major body of work, especially considering the depth of emotion Shostakovich evokes, demands much more than a cursory listen, but my feelings after repeatedly visiting the emotionally charged 8th and 15th quartets is that the Rubio Quartet is a more than worthy addition to the Shostakovich discography.
