Dimitri Shostakovich* – String Quartet No.8 in C minor

I have never featured any classical music before. I am going to go ahead and admit that I am a Philistine when it comes to this genre. It has always been one (much like Jazz) that I feel like I might get into when I grow up. No danger of that happening anytime soon though….

Anyway, a friend (and Classical aficionado) recommended this, which was apparently composed in merely three days.
