Dissimilar Parallel Lives. Britten & Shostakovich

Works by B. Britten and D. Shostakovich

2/20/2019

The good relationship Dmitri Shostakovich and Benjamin Britten maintained was facilitated by the husband-and-wife team made up of the cellist Mstislav Rostropovich and the soprano Galina Vishnevskaya. Britten’s Sonata Op. 65 was dedicated to Rostropovich and he gave the premiere of Shostakovich’s Five Satires Op. 109 with Vishnevskaya. Britten’s song cycle The Poet’s Echo Op. 76, composed to Russian texts by Alexander Pushkin, was also dedicated to the soprano.
