Shostakovich Symphony 5 Movement II solo

This is the loneliest statement I have yet encountered. My mind’s eye felt pain and frustration, as if the author had ideas of the utmost importance to share, but hadn’t the strength to continue their explanation.


As you can see, I forgo adding dynamics, including Tabuteau intensity numbers. Maintain the eighth-note pulse and let the manuscript bawl for itself.

In the midst of conversing with God about this deep statement by Dmitri.
