Synopsis

David Hurwitz provides a descriptive analysis of Dmitri Shostakovich's 21 symphonies and concertos, work by work, explaining not just why they are significant documents of their time and place, but why they are great music! This work offers readers an understanding of why Shostakovich's music enjoys the enduring support of performers and listeners alike, and how it fits into the great tradition of Western classical music generally. Accompanying full-length CD includes: Symphony No. 5, Op. 47; Moderato - Allegretto - Largo - Allegro non troppo; Cello Concerto No. 2, Op. 126; Largo - Allegretto (attacca) - Allegretto.

Especially recommended for music students and classical music lovers everywhere 4. Juli 2006
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
David Hurwitz, founder and editor of respected daily classical music magazine Classicstoday.com, presents Shostakovich Symphonies And Concertos: An Owner's Manual, an in-depth discussion of Shostakovich's grand musical creations. Offering much more than a technical analysis, Shostakovich Symphonies And Concertos also discusses at length what the music sounds like and how it works expressively. Featuring scrutiny of fifteen symphonies and six concertos in chronological order, Shostakovich Symphonies And Concertos provides a marvelous guided tour of the unfolding melodies as well as an overview of how Shostakovich's works fit into Western classical musical tradition. An accompanying full-length music CD contains a performance of Shostakovich's Fifth Symphony, which accurately showcases his style. Especially recommended for music students and classical music lovers everywhere.

'Popular' treatment 11. November 2006
Von B. R. Townsend - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Boy, do I ever hate being the ant at the picnic. But somebody has to say something. This is both useful and of little use simultaneously. That is, it is a well-written, conversational excursion through the repertoire that will be illuminating to many music-lovers. But at the same time it will teach them almost nothing.

Here is the problem: this book, like so many books on music written recently, takes the position that it would be the kiss of death to actually include a single musical example. To which many might say, yahoo! But if you resolutely avoid any use of musical notation, or even musical terms, in talking about music in a detailed fashion, then you find yourself having to say things like "and now the bippity-boop theme returns, this time on the flute." And I'm only slightly exaggerating. Imagine several pages about a work that uses a characteristic rhythm throughout in which the only way the author can refer to this rhythm is as 'The Rhythm'. Imagine if we have two themes and instead of describing one as being repeated eighth notes on D and the other as being rising fourths he has to refer to them as "the droney theme" and "the leapy theme". (These names are made up.) This is to reduce discussion of music to baby talk. And when the subject is large symphonic works, that seems particularly incongruous.

But I suspect that the author is not as much to blame as might be thought. He is after all, not starting a trend, but merely extending it. Apparently no-one, not even music-lovers, actually learns to read music any more. And also, apparently, if you want to actually, y'know, sell your book on music it must not contain any actual music.

But it's still baby-talk.

An excellent introduction to Shostakovich's major orchestral works 10. Januar 2007
Von Alfred Myers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I believe that as his work becomes better-known, Shostakovich will be universally regarded as the composer who in the post World War I era of the 20th century has contibuted than any other to the expansion of the standard classical music repertory. Hurwitz'z book is an excellent, jargon-free introduction to his 15 symphonies and 6 concertos. Written with the general reader, it has interesting insights on virtually all the works covered, even on those few symphonies, such as the 12th, which are usually dismissed as substandard hackwork. He is well aware of the already massive Shostakovich literature, including the controversial "Testimony" by Solomon Volkov, but he is not afraid to form his own opinions which may or may not be contrary to received knowledge. Heartily recommended to all classical music lovers.

Great Book For Anyone Who Is Looking For The Key To Shostakovich's Orchestral Canon 28. November 2010
Von Dmitri - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book offers analysis. It is an overview like a strategic war map of Europe during World War II. Some of the details will get lost as Mr. Hurwitz tries to describe in the most basic of terms what the music of Shostakovich's Symphonies and Concertos are to the musical novice. To be honest you have to have gotten at least a "C" in classical music appreciation and a class in Sonata Form would help. Fortunately I have had both and so I can make sense of Mr. Hurwitz writes.

One critic of this book feels that he is being talked down to. Well I feel just the opposite in grasping the ideas laid out in this book. All fifteen symphonies of Shostakovich and all six of his concertos are laid out for examination. Mr. Hurwitz comes to conclusion in this book for instance that the Shostakovich 4th symphony first movement which was thought to be nonsense just decades ago is an inverted Sonata Form movement. He also concludes in the book and I guess I am spoiling it by saying that in all twenty-one works Shostakovich never used the same patterns of music twice! Indeed this book makes you admire Shostakovich all the more if you don't already know him.

I should warn you that the book alone will not teach you about Shostakovich's music. But if you have his music and read what Hurwitz has written it makes a lot of sense especially to the novice or those with little education in music. This book might seem redundant to you if you already know Shostakovich's music and can analyze it for yourself. Personally it has clarified what I already have known and made me appreciate Shostakovich even more.

If you are collecting books about Shostakovich I would consider this one to be the third behind a good biography and the Hulme Catalog of his works.

More than disappointed 12. August 2009
Von Thomas Martin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I have to agree with the reviewer who wrote "...[h]ere is the problem: this book, like so many books on music written recently, takes the position that it would be the kiss of death to actually include a single musical example. To which many might say, yahoo! But if you resolutely avoid any use of musical notation, or even musical terms, in talking about music in a detailed fashion, then you find yourself having to say things like "and now the bippity-boop theme returns, this time on the flute." ..." I barely read music (yes, I'm musically illerate), but a little notation to illustrate a point would be helpful - in all of his books. Additionally, I purchased this book because I've been perpelxed by the many descriptions of Shostakovitch's 9th symphony that describes its humor and sarcasm -- where and what are they? I was hoping the book would touch on this topic (since what Shostiakovich wrote was NOT what Stalin expected..); unfortuately, no discussion of humor or sarcasm. For this reader, not many secrets were unlocked.
