Shostakovich: 24 Preludes & Fugues, Op.87 - Prelude No. 15 in D flat major
by Tatiana Nikolayeva
This Prelude is a brusque waltz typical of Shostakovich, with the opening theme resembling the seasonal rendition "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" (the date of the composition may explain this - appropriately, 20th December 1951, so exactly 67 years ago). Some professionals have described the vivace fugue as a "tour de force of chromatic and atonal writing, containing 11 of the 12 semitones possibly available".
