Dmitri Shostakovich - A Catalogue, Bibliography, and Discography

£24.99

Product description

Dmitri Shostakovich (1906-75) was one of the greatest composers of the twentieth century, and the first major Soviet composer. Derek Hulme's catalogue of the composer's works was first published privately in 1982. This second edition adds greatly to the information contained therein and brings it up to date. For each numbered work and all the known un-numbered compositions, Hulme provides a short description of the piece, and lists date of composition, dedicatee, forces the work employs, location of the autograph score, duration, arrangements of the work, premiere, an extensive list of recordings, and references to bibliography items where the piece is discussed in any detail. The entries are presented in order of opus number, with un-numbered compositions inserted appropriately within this chronological sequence. The catalogue is supplemented by a series of appendices, which includes a chronological chart of the composer's life and work and a discussion of the composer's monogram DSCH, a music motif based on his name that permeates his compositions. This edition contains a foreword by the composer's widow Irina Shostakovich.


Pages are in fine condition, Board is in fine condition, Dusk Jacket is in fine condition and is protected by a plastic sleeve.
