Additional information about Shostakovich’s No.10 Symphony Arrangement
Shostakovich’s No.10 Symphony was written in 1953, shortly after Stalin’s death that same year. About his own piece, it is believed Shostakovich wrote: “But I did depict Stalin in music in my next Symphony, the Tenth. I wrote it right after Stalin’s death, and no one has yet guessed what the Symphony is about. It’s about Stalin and the Stalin years.”
The arrangement for trumpet and bass trombone duo is dedicated to Shooters Brass.
