The C Minor Piano Trio was composed in 1923 when Shostakovich was 17 years old and the most brilliant student at the Petrograd Conservatory. Shostakovich tried to avoid the sound of 19th-century piano trios and to create original music for a post-Revolutionary society. The E Minor Piano Trio begun in 1943 immediately after Shostakovich had completed his 7th and 8th symphonies. The finale is grim and disturbing, using Jewish idioms as symbols of oppression and victimhood. The ending is still, like a mass

Shostakovich was the greatest composer of the Soviet era and throughout his life walked a tightrope between satisfying the authorities and voicing the hopes and fears of the people. His two exuberant piano concertos are among his most accessible works and are coupled here with the Ninth Symphony, whose playful sense of both humour and irreverence was a distinct shock to the Soviet system.

Shostakovich must be one of the most written-about composers. His works have been analyzed for their musical content, their political subtext, and their relationship to his personal and public life, ignoring the fact that music follows its own laws. However, they have now become familiar enough to render further words unnecessary; just listening to them tells us all we need to know. For example, the assertion that the 15 quartets sound much alike is easily disproved by this recording, with which the
Much of Shostakovich s orchestral music was first heard in versions he prepared for piano four hands or two pianos but most of these transcriptions have languished unheard since those early performances. This series uncovers all the transcriptions prepared by Shostakovich himself, coupling them with all of his original music for piano duo and duet. It begins with the first recording of his four-hand version of the Ninth Symphony.

McLachlan has long had a fine reputation as a performer of Russian music, as well as championing briliant but little-known composers such as Williamson and Chisholm (see the composer index). On this CD, he presents the Piano Sonatas nos 1 and 2 by Shostakovich with works by composers in his circle; though not Russian, the piece by Roland Stevenson is included both because it is based on Shostakovich's name, but also because Stevenson, politically, can genuinely be called a 'comrade' of those devoted to
