Shostakovich, Dmitri - Andantino from Quartet No. 4, Op. 83 - Violin and Piano - arranged by Dmitri Tsyganov - DSCH Edition

Item# 1016 167

Shar: $4.95Sale: $4.46

In Stock

  • Instrumentation: Violin & Piano
  • Composer: Shostakovich
  • Publisher: DSCH
This tragically beautiful Andantino from Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 4, Op. 83 was transcribed for violin and piano by Dmitri Tsyganov.  As a violinist and member of the Beethoven Quartet, which premiered many of Shostakovich's string quartets, Tsyganov was certainly familiar with the composer's writing for the quartet medium.  The melody of the Andantino begins softly, with a subdued quality, then gradually builds up to a high, wailing climax, and then recedes to nearly nothing, ending with a morendo marking (literally "dying away").  In the quartet, this is the second movement; in this arrangement, it quite capably stands alone.

This version for violin and piano is arranged by Dmitri Tsyganov.  Published by DSCH Publishing.

Shostakovich, Dmitri - Four Preludes for Violin and Piano, OP 34 - arranged by Dmitri Tsyganov - DSCH Publishers

Dmitri Shostakovich composed his 24 Preludes, Op. 34 for solo piano in 1932-33, just after completing his controversial opera, Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk.  Not too long after their composition, a handful of the preludes were transcribed for violin and piano by violinist Dmitri Tsyganov of the Beethoven Quartet, the group that premiered many of Shostakovich's string quartets.  Tsyganov began with this set of Four Preludes, then published a set of ten, then a set of five more.  There were five more preludes that he never arranged for violin and piano, feeling that they were, in essence, too pianistic to work in the new medium.

Shostakovich-Two Pieces for String Quartet Score

Item# 6400 167

Shar: $18.00Sale: $16.20

  • Publisher: DSCH
Two Pieces for String Quartet by Dmitri Shostakovich is a work without an Opus number.� It is sometimes denoted as Op. 36 or 36a, but that number is already assigned to an orchestral suite.� It seems that the two pieces for quartet were never published during the composer's lifetime, but instead discovered in the 1980s; they appear to have been written around 1931.� They are short pieces, made up of themes that would go on to be central to other works by Shostakovich: in the first piece, Elegy, we hear a plaintive aria from his 1934 opera Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District; the second is a tongue-in-cheek Polka from his 1930 ballet/orchestral suite The Age of Gold.� Best suited to an advanced string quartet.

Shostakovich, Dmitri - Quartet No. 1 in C, Op. 49. Score. Published by DSCH.

  • Instrumentation: String Quartet
  • Composer: Shostakovich
  • Publisher: DSCH
Dmitri Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 1 in C major (Op. 49) was composed in six weeks during the summer of 1938. This string quartet has none of the bravura of the fifth symphony which preceded it. Instead, the composer seemed to have discovered a new kind of distinctly Russian neoclassicism. The tone is chiefly optimistic, although the minor-keyed inner movements provide a contrast. Shostakovich wrote of this quartet "I visualized childhood scenes, somewhat na�ve and bright moods associated with spring."

Shostakovich's second quartet was written in just 19 days in 1944 a year before the end of World War 2 and reflects the mood of the times. Forceful and energetic outer movements are balanced by a lyrical and calm second movement.

Like his famous String Quartet No. 8 in c minor, Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 5 in B-flat Major contains the composer's "monogram" - a brief motive based on letters in his name (DSCH). Also similar is the way in which the movements elide, to be played continuously through without a break. The String Quartet No. 5 was composed in 1952 and premiered by the Beethoven Quartet the following year.

This edition contains a set of parts for two violins, viola, and cello. Score sold separately. Published by DSCH Publishing.

  • Instrumentation: String Quartet
  • Composer: Shostakovich

First performed in 1956 by the Beethoven Quartet. The Allegretto first movement creates a carefree mood using nursery tunes. The second movement is a cheerful round dance in E-flat major, the third movement a chaconne in B-flat minor. The final movement leads into a complex Allegretto showing the influence of both Alban Berg�s Lyric Suite and Richard Strauss�s Metamorphosen. The quartet also features the only vertical appearance of the DSCH motive (the notes D, E-flat, C, and B played at the same time). This happens at the cadence at the end of each movement.

Shostakovich rarely changed or revised his works, but the Ninth Quartet is one of the rare exceptions. Shostakovich finished the first version of the Ninth Quartet in the autumn of 1961. In a fit of depression, or, to quote his own words, 'in an attack of healthy self-criticism, I burnt it in the stove. This is the second such case in my creative practice. I once did a similar trick of burning my manuscripts, in 1926.' Shostakovich took three years to complete the new Ninth Quartet, finishing it on 28 May 1964. The premiere was by the Beethoven Quartet in Moscow on 20 November 1964. The piece has five movements, played without pause.
