Shostakovich: The String Quartets
Dmitry Shostakovich, Emerson String Quartet

Deutsche Grammophon, 2006

While his symphonies were subjected to scrutiny and censure by the suffocating Soviet government, the string quartets were chamber pieces into which he felt free to pour all his sadness, anger and boldest musical ideas. They are some of the most passionate, deeply affecting works in the classical canon, and these Emerson Quartet performances have won universal acclaim for their virtuosity and emotional power. Includes all 15 quartets on 5 CDs.


The 50 Darkest Pieces of Classical Music
Liszt, Tchaikovsky, ...

X5 Music Group, 2012

Some of the great classical composers have a dark side and while perhaps hidden in their personal lives, it comes alive in their music. There exists a rich variety of gloomy numbers from the darker regions: Beethoven's 5th, the gothic blueprint of Orff's Carmina Burana, and Liszt's Totentanz to name a few. All of the titles not only showcase the tortured souls of these great composers, but also connect with our universal fascination for the ...

Shostakovich: Symphony No. 4
Shostakovich, Petrenko

Naxos, 2013

Completed in 1936 but withdrawn during rehearsal and not performed until 1961, the searing Fourth Symphony finds Shostakovich stretching his musical idiom to the limit in the search for a personal means of expression at a time of undoubted personal and professional crisis. The opening movement, a complex and unpredictable take on sonata form that teems with a dazzling profusion of varied motifs, is followed by a short, eerie central movement. ...

When Yevgeny Kutik s family emigrated from the former Soviet Union in 1990 they had to leave behind most of their possessions. They arrived in the United States with just two suitcases. At his mother s insistence, one of the suitcases was filled with sheet music from the family s collection. At the time, it made little sense to the rest of the family to drag this tattered music halfway across the globe, leaving less room for the clothes and ...

Shostakovich: Complete Symphonies

Brilliant Classics, 2002

The Complete Symphonies - Shostakovich's music is the music of 20th century Russia, from the turbulent Revolution, through the horrors of war to the communistic repression. It is the cry of a soul in torment, expressing grief, despair in a highly personal way, through irony or bitter truth. The symphonies span Shostakovich's whole life, and form a milestone in the symphonic repertoire. They are frequently played, and have gained nearly the same ...
