On December 1, the Cavani String Quartet will perform an all Shostakovich program at the Cleveland Institute of Music as a part of the chamber music festival. Besides performing the 7th and 8th quartets, Sergei Babayan will join them in a performance of the Quintet for Two Violins, Viola, Cello and Piano in G Minor, Op. 57.
