SHOSTAKOVICH: String Quartet No. 8 in C minor. TCHAIKOVSKY: String Quartet No. 1. Lafayette String Quartet. Dorian Recordings DOR-90163. A highly refined performance can occasionally take away from a piece of music, especially one dealing with raw emotions. Such is the case with the Lafayette's reading of Shostakovich's Eighth, which here seems not grotesque or cruel or stark enough.

As originally announced, the Lafayette String Quartet's program on the Music Guild series at Cal State Northridge's New Performing Arts Center resembled a sandwich consisting of an ample roll with a wispy-thin slice of tangy Swiss cheese--major quartets of Mozart and Schubert separated by a dash of mordant Stravinsky.

Since 1944, the Music Guild, a chamber music organization, has helped make Los Angeles safe for chamber music, bringing groups to Southern California from around the world.

Monday at CSUN, the Music Guild will present the Lafayette String Quartet.

A stalwart proponent of chamber music in Los Angeles, the Music Guild opened its 53rd season on what could have been a misstep, but bad turned to good.

Although the cultural climate in the San Fernando Valley has improved in recent years, classical music lovers in the area have, for the most part, resigned themselves to heading over the hill to satisfy their concert needs. There are a few exceptions, including the Music Guild concert series, which brings high-caliber chamber music to the music-parched Valley several times a year.
