Shostakovich: 24 Preludes & Fugues

Shostakovich: 24 Preludes & Fugues


Pre-concert talk at 6.45pm

Shostakovich wrote his massive cycle of 24 Preludes and Fugues Op. 87 in the space of only four months. A fusion of Bachian archetypes, a particularly Russian counterpoint (instigated in the late 19th century by Taneyev), Soviet classicism and Shostakovich’s unmistakable voice, Shostakovich’s Op. 87 quickly became a cornerstone of twentieth-century piano polyphony.

Duration: 4:00 (including pre-concert talk and interval)
