Album information

A passionate and sensitive performance of Haydn's famous work The Seven Last Words.

'...playing that is pure, sensitive and, where called for, gorgeously passionate.' The Scotsman 


The Fitzwilliam String Quartet became the first ever group to perform and record all fifteen of Shostakovich's quartets. They gained many international awards for these recordings. The Fitzwilliam String Quartet perform on original instruments. The Seven Last Words was originally an orchestral work which provided the musical interludes depicting each of Christ's final statements and the Priest's meditations thereon.
