“Listen to my music … everything is there,” avowed Shostakovich. This Piano Quintet demonstrates several facets of the composer’s personality: gravitas, rigour, theatricality, and irony. Its highly personal substance brings out the expressive and lyrical intensity of this work, to be performed by outstanding chamber musicians.
