Rachmaninoff & Shostakovich

Fri, Apr 12
The third time was the charm for Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 4. After two unsuccessful premieres, Rachmaninoff revised and republished it in 1941, finally achieving public acceptance as a worthy addition to his first three concertos. Shostakovich, forced into the Soviet Communist Party and expected to compose a work dedicated to Lenin’s memory, achieved the seemingly impossible in his Symphony No. 12 in D minor—writing music that pulses with the energy of a revolution, while maintaining his personal integrity through his uniquely subversive, sardonic voice.
