Customer Reviews

good stuff

Note that the second waltz in Jazz Suite no 2 is that haunting waltz used in Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut. Its general aura of reluctant tawdry desire just fits the movie. Good to hear it more or less in its setting.

Love it!

How could I have missed this? I've long loved Kurt Weill's music for the Threepenny Opera, and now here's Shostakovich's Jazz Suite No. 1! It's interesting that both Weill and Shostakovich produced this kind of music in extremely difficult political climates—one in Nazi Germany, and the other in Soviet Russia. Weill eventually left Germany, but Shostakovich remained in the lion's den, and he endured. It gives me hope. (Good performances, too.)

I love you, Dmitri Shostakovich!

There is so much I can say, but I'll leave it at this: he was irrefutably the greatest, most ingenious man to ever walk this earth. He continues to stir people's emotions.
