  1. 24 Preludes and Fugues Op 87 - Dmitry Shostakovich

Shostakovich wrote his massive cycle of 24 Preludes and Fugues Op 87 in the space of only four months. A fusion of Bachian archetypes, a particularly Russian counterpoint (instigated in the late 19th century by Taneyev), Soviet classicism and Shostakovich’s unmistakable voice, Shostakovich’s Op 87 quickly became a cornerstone of 20th century piano polyphony.
