Borodin String Quartet
"Tchaikovsky: String Quartet no. 3 & Souvenir de Florence"

The Borodin Quartet has released Souvenir no less than 5 times on different labels. I know that at least three of these recordings are separate. They also recorded the Tchaikovsky Quartets at least three times.

This is curious, until you consider that this quartet seems uninterested in recording any music that isn't Russian. How much does that leave you with once you've recorded Shostakovich, Borodin and...well, Tchaikovsky.
