Rachmaninoff vs Shostakovich
Posted: Thu Feb 16, 2017 3:54 pm
I always found the stark contrast between these two very different composers fascinating as approximate Russian contemporaries. One a resident of Switzerland and Beverly Hills firmly rooted in the late romantic tradition favoring emotional melodies. The other enduring a bitter war with Leningrad under siege composing stark and grim socialist realism under duress of Stalin's terror. What very different circumstances.

Interested in thoughts or preferences (if that's possible). Mine more toward Shostakovich realism, despite the darkness of his works.
