Notes & Reviews:

When considering the music of Shostakovich, with its focus on theatrical projects in his earlier years and symphonic works thereafter, it is easy to forget the significance of his piano music as a vehicle for some of his most experimental and personal ideas. The present recording features some of Shostakovich's most important piano works, their often radical tendencies fitting in well with the heady years of artistic experimentation in the Soviet Union.
