Performers Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Composed in 9134, almost concurrently with the Congress of Soviet Writers declaration of "Socialist Realism" as the only acceptable mode for Soviet artistic production, the Shostakovich Cello Sonata gives proof of the composer's struggle to maintain his intellectual integrity, which made him such a model for later generations. This disc features the cello sonatas of Shostakovich and his circle, Mieczyslaw "Moisey" Vainberg and Boris Tchaikovsky, both of whom died in February 1996. The disc is a special contribution to the hundredth anniversary of Shostakovich's birthday in 2006, and at the same time a remembrance of Vainberg's and Tchaikovsky's death ten years ago. These powerful Soviet Era masterworks are given a compelling performance by Johannes Moser.
