Where should I start with Shostakovich?
- The 5th is the standard introduction to Shostakovich.
- The 9th is small, but has all the hallmarks of true Shostakovich. It’s how I got started.
- The 7th is populist (rat-tat-tat-tat-tat), but its slow movement is sublime.
The 24 Preludes and Fugues have something for everybody.
