The recorded voice of Anna Akhmatova opens the first of four concerts bringing together words and music from Soviet Russia. The acclaimed Carducci Quartet start the journey with Shostakovich’s 1st string quartet, which reflects the pure and myriad emotions of childhood, while Simon Callow reads poetry that mirrors its classical simplicity, as well as setting the scene for the darker mood of the 3rd and 4th quartets, composed in the 1940s, as the shadows cast by fascism and communism lengthened and art was sometimes ‘truth’s disguise.’
