This recording features two pieces for cello by Shostakovich, written 25 years apart. The insolent Sonata for Cello and Piano Op. 40 of 1934 contemporary with Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District, the opera soon to plunge its composer into disgrace with Stalin was answered in 1959 by the bitter self-questioning of the Cello Concerto which ends with a wicked caricature of joy.
Harmonia Mundi is offering the track "Allegro" from Shostakovich: Cello Concerto No. 1 for SFCV readers to download and enjoy.
