Yi-Fang Wu is currently the staff pianist at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.

Just wondering: Shostakovich Concerto #1, or #2?


Yi-Fang W., almost 8 years ago

We will play the entire Shostakovich concerto No.1 in E-flat Major, Op.107!

I've listened to classical music a lot, but I think the piece I've listened to the most times (like, 100+) is this concerto. The first time this was played was in piano/cello format, with DSCH and Rostropovich. Three or four days after sending Rostropovich the score, Shostakovich went to him for a read-through and went to get a music stand. Rostropovich told him it was not needed and wrote that was the proudest moment of his life.
