Info
His first major musical achievement was the First Symphony (premiered 1926), written as his graduation piece at the age of 19. Shostakovich was commissioned in March 1927 to write a kind of hymn for the celebrations of the 10th anniversary of the October Revolution. As a result, in summer he composed the 2nd Symphony "To the October" in B-flat major, one of his most avant-garde compositions of that time. The 3rd Symphony in E- flat major subtitles "To May 1". After withdrawing his 4th Symphony in c-minor due to a critical Pravda article Shostakovich composed the moderate 5th Symphony in d-minor in Crimea. The purely instrumental 6th Symphony was completed in September 1939. The 7th Symphony in C-major is considered to be Shostakovich's most famous work. The epic 8th Symphony in c-minor, in which he settled with Stalin, premiered in Moscow in 1943 under Yevgeny Mrawinski in e-minor. 1957 followed the 11th Symphony in g-minor with the subtitle "The year 1905" referring to the St. Petersburg Blood Sunday. After the premiere of the 12th Symphony in d-minor, Shostakovich's admission to the CPSU took place, which heavily burdened him. With his 13th Symphony in b-minor Shostakovich again came under criticism, as the work to words of the poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko denounces the Russian anti-semitism; the work was discontinued after a few performances. The 14th Symphony for soprano, bass and chamber orchestra already dealt with the subject of death and farewell. The 15th Symphony in A-major, his last one, is an enigmatic, at first glance friendly, rather abysmal, retrospective of a composer's life full of ups and downs. A recording with the Wiener Symphoniker conducted by Eliahu Inbal.
