The quartet formed by the students of the OCM orchestral academy meet to perform one of the most famous quartets of all time, the Quartet n. 8 by Shostakovich. Dedicated to the victims of all wars and of Fascism (but perhaps it would be better to say, of all dictatorships), the Soviet composer builds this masterpiece as a series of self-quotations, in a crescendo of intensity and ferocity that leads to the two slow and mournful concluding movements.
