Notes & Reviews:

Throughout his career, willingly or not and with mixed success, Shostakovich worked in the film industry. As a student he played piano in silent cinemas, and over the next forty-odd years he wrote almost forty film scores. Shostakovich's film scores are characteristic of his music at its best: full of melody, atmosphere, invention, color and energy. Much of this music is rare on CD, and this program is unique.
