SHOSTAKOVICH 14th SYMPHONY - Malagueña (Lorca) part-2


Valery Gergiev introduces Shostakovich Symphony No 14

Shostakovich decided his work should be designated as a symphony, rather than a song cycle. He wanted to emphasize on the unity of the work musically and philosophically. It consists of 11 linked movements, each a setting of a poem by 4 authors. Most of the poems are about unjust or early death.
