Shostakovich, Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op. 67,IV-Allegretto - Adagio

The Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op. 67, by Dmitri Shostakovich was written in 1944 and dedicated

to his closest friend Ivan Sollertinsky after his death. The work received its premiere in

Leningrad on 14 November 1944. The piece consists of four movements:


Shostakovich - I. Allegro
Shostakovich - II. Allegro con brio
Shostakovich - III. Largo
Shostakovich - IV. Allegretto - Adagio

This Jewish melody from the last movement was quoted in Shostakovich's famous String Quartet No.8

I really love this harsh, charming, powerful, elegant, controlled, manipulating piano trio and it is among my favourite works of Shosta (along with the preludes and fugues).

And they are really well played here! I would really recommend listening to this!

They are up on the site.
