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.
