Shostakovich's Second Piano Trio
From the October, 2006 issue
Some would argue - heck, I would argue - that Shostakovich's Second Piano Trio may be his best chamber work. Deeper than his magisterial Piano Quintet, more objective than his magnificent string quartets, and perhaps more profoundly compassionate than anything else he ever wrote, Shostakovich's Trio is truly in a class of its own.
