Rostislav Dubinsky, the original first violinist of the Borodin Quartet, who Shostakovich consulted on his string compositions, recalled the impact of the Piano Quintet’s premiere as overshadowing ‘even such events as the football matches between the main teams’. Written whilst he was studying at the Vienna Conservatoire, the single surviving movement of Mahler’s Piano Quartet is Mahler’s only composition that is not a symphony or a song.
