CLASSICAL OPUS no.91

 

Dmitri Shostakovich – “Five Pieces for Two Violins and Piano”

ドミトリ・ショスタコーヴィチ – 「2つのヴァイオリンとピアノのための5つの作品」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 11 minutes

Abandoned, husky and rumbling, this collection exposes head-on clashes between deceptively banal melodicism and strident scraps of what hostile Soviet critics dubbed ‘formalism’.  Mysteriously, it’s his outings into dissonance that prove most deeply affective and almost pungent with bereavement.

A REFLECTION

Falling is the constant mate of fear,

And feel of emptiness is the feel of fright.

Who throws us the stones from the height —

And stones here refuse the dust to bear?

 

Osip Mandelshtam: “Falling is the constant mate of fear”
