Quintet op. 57

Museum tickets

 

In 1939, after his Lady Macbeth, an article was published in Pravda advising Shostakovich to compose according to canons consonant with the Stalinist period. No more experiments, but a “classic” form, without revolutions and upheavals. From this period is the Quintet op. 57. The change was less evident than in the symphonic production (the Fifth Symphony was, in his words, “a positive response […] to the right criticisms”), but the simplicity and clarity are peculiarities of the quintet that we will hear in the Galleria degli Mirrors.
