Sometimes music is best heard at volume. A case in point? The second movement of Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 8. I recommend the Fitzwilliam String Quartet recording. (The Emerson Quartet’s recording is available on iTunes, but the Fitzwilliams’ isn’t.)

(Apologies to our next door neighbours. I’m enjoying my last bout of loud music at home before we travel and don’t have access to a decent sound system.)

That is all.
