Shostakovich: 24 Preludes & Fugues / David Jalbert

Album Summary

>Shostakovich, Dmitri : Preludes & Fugues (24), for piano, Op. 87
Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Successful performance of the set relies on a pianist's ability to pay close, almost microscopic attention to detail and the ability to quickly and decisively change character. Such skills are present in abundance in pianist David Jalbert. His spirited interpretation of Op. 87 takes listeners on a whirlwind tour of emotions and colors, all completely sincere and entirely captivating. His technique is quite clean, and even in the busiest of multi-voice fugues, every note and every line is easily discernable. The result is an album that is appropriate as a first introduction to Op. 87, but also worthy of addition to an existing collection." -All Music Guide
