Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Although the symphonies, string quartets and concertos represent the core of his achievement, Shostakovich had wide sympathies across the musical spectrum: hence his oft-repeated comment that he enjoyed all music from Bach to Offenbach. All the works on this disc - which opens with a suite from the ballet 'The Bolt' and concludes with his orchestration of 'Tea for Two' - attest to a composer who entered into the spirit of light music with enjoyment and enthusiasm.
