The Piano sonatas of Dmitri Shostakovich, performance and remarks

March 29 @ 7:00 pm

  • This event has passed.

Piano Sonata No. 1, Op. 12 (1926), is the composer’s first substantial work. Concise in structure and dense in emotional content, Op. 12 demonstrates Shostakovich’s overt intellectualism and interest in the burgeoning avant-garde. Piano Sonata No. 2, Op. 61 (1943), dedicated to the memory of Leonid Nikolaev, stands in opposition to Op. 12 with its accessibility of language and structure.

Free and open to the public.
