Dmitry Shostakovich was a Russian composer whose symphonies and quartets, numbering 15 each, are among the greatest examples from the 20th century of these classic forms. His style evolved from the brash humor and experimental character of his first period, exemplified by the operas The Nose and Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, into both the more introverted melancholy .

    The symphony is in five compact movements, the last three played without a break. It is the shortest by far of Shostakovich's later Symphonies. Shostakovich himself called this 'a merry little piece', adding that 'musicians will love to play it, and critics will delight in blasting it.' The composer was vindicated in his prophesy/5(28).   Books Music Art & design TV & radio Stage Classical Games More Classical music Shostakovich: Symphonies Nos 4 and 11 review – brittleness and brilliance and the Concerto for Stan Getz.
