Notes & Reviews:

The present volume sets Shostakovich's large-scale works against his smaller pieces written for various occasions. Sonata No. 1 is the young Shostakovich at his most daring and intransigent. Shostakovich often performed this sonata, and its stormy torrent of energy amazed enthusiastic listeners. In October 1942 Shostakovich received news that his piano teacher L. Nikolaev had died, and he decided to write a tribute piece, 'Sonata No. 2.' This ascetic sounding work, shot through with the tragedy of war and the siege of Leningrad, was composed in the spring on 1943.
