Symphony of Psalms, arr. Shostakovich
Symphony No. 4, arr. Shostakovich
Other Minds brings Dennis Russell Davies and Maki Namekawa back to San Francisco to perform a double header of two piano arrangements by Shostakovich, including the American Premiere of his own Symphony No. 4 and Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms.
Written in 1936, the full orchestral score of Symphony No. 4 was lost during World War II and reconstructed in 1961. Until that point, the composer’s two piano arrangement was the only version that survived. Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms was also composed around the same time, in 1930, when works were often heard in piano arrangements for four hands.
