 Catalogue  Shostakovich • 24 Preludes & Fugues Opus 87
Shostakovich • 24 Preludes & Fugues Opus 87

David Jalbert makes his long-awaited ATMA debut with a masterly interpretation of Shostakovich’s keyboard masterpiece, the 24 Preludes and fugues.

The lifelong tension between Shostakovich and the Soviet musical establishment is well known. Most of his compositions reflect the fine musical line the composer had to tread, and the sometimes strained duality that often resulted. The 24 Preludes and fugues are among his few “private” works, in which he did not need to be so careful to camouflage his true voice. They are 'pure' music, stripped of all ideology or intent to stimulate patriotism.

Canadian pianist Jalbert has a growing career as a soloist, and has also appeared on disc and in recital as a duo partner, particularly with cellist Denise Djokic, and as a chamber musician. Recorded in August and September, 2007, at the Domaine Forget’s Salle Françoys Bernier, by ATMA’s Anne-Marie Sylvestre. “With acoustical design by Russell Johnson's ARTEC of New York, the Salle Françoys Bernier is nothing less than one of the finest music venues in the country.” – Toronto Star.
