Product Description & Reviews

Under the spell of a Bach festival, Shostakovich composed one of his masterpieces: this monumental tribute to the master of Leipzig. You can hear baroque polyphony throughout this music, along with Shostakovich's typical range of emotions from elation to despair--with lots of the latter. Any pianist who records this music must face the stiff competition of Tatiana Nikolaeva. Shostakovich wrote the music specifically for her, and she plays with awesome command and mystery. Ashkenazy runs here a very close second, with nearly the same level of projection and extremely impressive fluency. Since no one version of this music can tell you everything it has to say, it's a good idea to get both. Nikolaeva's takes an extra CD but still costs less. --Leslie Gerber
