Dmitri Shostakovich

Happy birthday Dmitri Shostakovich! He was born on this date in 1906 in Tsarist Russia and became a fast-maturing adolescent with the arrival of the 1917 Russian revolution that changed life into the Soviet system of deprivation and civil war. And while his conservative musical education never advanced past about 1905, he absorbed new early 20th century ideas and served them up in his music with scathing opinion and biting humor (which got him in trouble with Soviet authorities). Written as a conservatory graduation requirement, the 19 year old Shostakovich’s First Symphony enjoyed a spectacular 1926 premiere in Leningrad and established his reputation abroad the following year. It’s today’s Midday Masterpiece.
