Dmitry Dmitriyevich Shostakovich Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Template:Eastern Slavic nameDmitri Dmitriyevich Shostakovich (Russian: About this sound Дми́трий Дми́триевич Шостако́вич , tr. Dmitrij Dmitrievič Šostakovič, pronounced [ˈdmʲitrʲɪj ˈdmʲitrʲɪɪvʲɪt͡ɕ ʂəstɐˈkovʲɪt͡ɕ]; 25 September 1906 – 9 August 1975) was a Russian composer and pianist, and a prominent figure of 20th-century music.Shostakovich achieved fame in the Soviet Union under the patronage of Soviet chief of staff Mikhail Tukhachevsky, but later had a complex and difficult relationship with the government. Nevertheless, he received accolades and state awards and served in the Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR (1947–1962) and the Supreme Soviet of the Soviet Union (from 1962 until his death).After a period influenced by Sergei Prokofiev and Igor Stravinsky, Shostakovich developed a hybrid style, as exemplified by Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District (1934). This single work juxtaposed a wide variety of trends, including the neo-classical style (showing the influence of Stravinsky) and post-Romanticism (after Gustav Mahler). Sharp contrasts and elements of the grotesque characterize much of his music.Shostakovich's orchestral works include 15 symphonies and six concerti. His chamber output includes 15 string quartets, a piano quintet, two piano trios, and two pieces for string octet. His piano works include two solo sonatas, an early set of preludes, and a later set of 24 preludes and fugues. Other works include three operas, several song cycles, ballets, and a substantial quantity of film music; especially well known is The Second Waltz, Op. 99, music to the film The First Echelon (1955–1956).

#Quote
1The climax of joy is not when you're through a new symphony, but when you are hoarse from shouting, with your hands stinging from clapping, your lips parched, and you sip a second glass of beer after you've fought for it with 90,000 other spectators to celebrate the victory of your favorite team.
#Fact
1A fan of the Zenit Leningrad (today Zenit Saint Petersburg) football club. He also had a qualification as a football referee.
2Father of Irina Shostakovich.
3Was trapped in Leningrad for several months while the German army laid siege to it, but was evacuated before the city was liberated by Russian forces and the siege lifted.
4Had the ability to write music in the midst of a great deal of noise. He would often write in crowded cafés, even when construction was going on outside.
5His opera "Lady Macbeth of Mtensk" was strongly criticized in a review on the Pravda. As a result of this attack, Shostakovich shelved his Fourth Symphony (written at the same time as the opera), and it wasn't premiered until decades afterward. When rehearsals for the premiere began, he refused to have a single note of the symphony altered.
6Played piano in movie theaters during the silent film era in St. Petersburg, Russia.
7First learned piano from his mother. On several occasions, he displayed a remarkable ability to remember what his mother had played at the previous lesson, and would get caught in the act of pretending to read, by playing the previous lesson's music when different music was placed in front of him.
8The father of Galina Shostakovich and conductor Maksim Shostakovich. Grandfather of composer Dmitri Shostakovich Jr.
9His Eighth String Quartet, Op. 110, was written from start to finish over the span of just three days.
