"This book is a paean to Shostakovich's quartets and their significance. In her listening, Lesser...is literate, sensitive and imaginative. Her book is an outsider's perspective--she comes to the quartets as a passionate listener rather than as a musician or analyst--which also gives her considerable freedom to speculate. She hears them as a spiritual autobiography; they are program music about Shostakovich himself." - Edward Rothstein 05/08/2011
