Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Firma Melodiya presents a recording of Dmitri Shostakovich's 24 Preludes and Fugues performed by Tatiana Nikolayeva. This cycle have been played by many pianists, but Tatiana Nikolayeva's interpretation is still considered a model one. Internally, each of the preludes and fugues is individual. Nevertheless, the whole cycle is united with the same composer's idea. The infinite wealth of images - lyrical, pastoral, tragic, grotesque, carefree and joyous - puts this work among the highest achievements of Shostakovich's music which was a worthy successor of the great traditions laid down by Johann Sebastian Bach.
