Dmitry Shostakovich: The Pioneer (1921-1932)

In stock

A logical, albeit little performed combination of the first three symphonies by a highly gifted young Shostakovich, who went on to lend his astonishing orchestration talents to a host of avant-garde theatre and ballet productions and to the budding film industry. Although a true activist, he enjoyed the protection of a General and the CultureMinister (that is, until they were discretely eliminated). Here is an unexpected selection, in turn amusing or mainstream, but never vulgar.

Couplage logique, peu pratiqué, des trois premières symphonies du jeune Chostakovitch, musicien surdoué, prêtant ses étonnants dons d’orchestrateur au support musical de nombre de productions d’avant-garde touchant au monde du théâtre, ballet et du cinéma naissant. Un militant sincère, heureusement protégé par un général et le ministre de la culture… jusqu’à leur discrète élimination. Un survol étonnant, souvent hilarant, populaire, jamais vulgaire.
