The Complete Preludes and Fugues of Dmitri Shostakovich – Russian-born pianist Alexander Melnikov will tackle a tremendous cycle: Shostakovich’s complete Preludes and Fugues. He is one of the only pianists to commit this daunting cycle to recording, and has done so in dazzling fashion: his 2010 recording was included in BBC Music Magazine’s list of the “50 Greatest Recordings of All Time.” Following this stunning critical reception, he makes a rare live appearance at Princeton focusing on these extraordinary pieces from Russia’s most controversial composer.
