A programme of Bach and Shostakovich

Leominster’s own and much-loved pianist Andrew Morris will present a fascinating recital of music by Bach and Shostakovich. This special programme is best described by Andrew himself: ‘The idea of a set of pieces in all 24 major and minor keys was realised for the first time in the early 1720s with the first book of Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier. Many later composers, including most famously Chopin and Shostakovich, have followed suit. This concert will present a series of pieces by Shostakovich and Bach in the order of the circle of keys beginning with C major and ending with D minor. All 24 of the Shostakovich Preludes Op 34 will be performed, interspersed with pieces by Bach in the relevant keys. The whole programme will be flanked by the opening and closing Preludes and Fugues from Shostakovich’s Op. 87. But this all sounds very dry and academic! The real intention of the programme is to share my joy in the extraordinarily creative imagination and emotional range of these two composers.’
