Shostakovich’s 24 Preludes and Fugues may have begun as a homage to Bach, but they evolved into one of twentieth century music’s most intimate testimonies – a fact that’s not lost on Igor Levit. Praised by Alex Ross of The New Yorker for his “tonal allure, intellectual drive and technical brilliance” it’s hard to think of any living artist better equipped to convey all of Shostakovich’s satire, poetry and wit, in this marathon full cycle.
