About this release

Dmitri Shostakovich wrote symphonies and string quartets with violent and intense music. But he did have a sense of humour as well. Just as he could handle the very un-Russian jazz idiom. Both jazz suites show the light-hearted side of Russia’s most important 20th-century composer.
