At age 15, Dimitri Shostakovich already knew The Well-Tempered Clavier by heart. Thus, it is not surprising that, in 1950, after a trip to Leipzig, he decided to compose a piano cycle inspired by Bach’s work. In this video, Miguel Ituarte performs pairs of preludes and fugues by Bach and Shostakovich in alternation, demonstrating the similarities between both collections.
