CD Cover Shostakovich 24 Preludes and Fugues Op 87 Classification: Piano Label: Romeo Records CD Number:7315 Price:£12.54

Comment:Composed between September 1950 and February 1951, Shostakovich's 24 Preludes and Fugues are one of his most personal works. Craig Sheppard's recording, made live, derives from performances given in Seattle during April 2015.

"… clearly at the zenith of his career, he achieves a brilliantly inclusive poise and brio that go to the very heart of Shostakovich. He ends the Fugue of No 24 in a blaze of maestoso glory and a storm of cheers. Finely recorded, this is a memorable issue." Bryce Morrison, Gramophone, December 2015.
