Works by teacher and pupil – Shostakovich and Galina Ustvolskaya – deliver abundant expressive richness and depth to Elena Bashkirova’s programme with the Jerusalem Chamber Music Festival Ensemble.

The haunting melodies and sombre intensity of Ustvolskaya’s Trio for clarinet, violin and piano supports her statement that ‘There is no link whatsoever between my music and that of any other composer, living or dead’.
