Released:
Label: Naxos
In this stunning recording, Russian pianist Konstantin Scherbakov plays this cycle of preludes and fugues with the delicacy of the Bach cycle that inspired it and the titanic fury of its composer, Dmitri Shostakovich. At moments the works sound utterly classical; in other moments, Scherbakov's smear of pedal over dissonance adds a jazz sensibility that reminds listeners that Shostakovich wrote this in 1951.
