DSCH – Schostakovich Ensemble

The DSCH – Schostakovich Ensemble presents a concert dedicated to the music of one of the most brilliant composers in the History of 20th century Music: Dmitri Schostakovich.
The ensemble was created by pianist Filipe Pinto-Ribeiro in 2006, on the centenary of Schostakovich’s birth, to whom they pay tribute in their designation, thus exalting his artistic ideal of the composer of authenticity and humanism, of rigor and passion, expressed in the musical enigma of an autobiographical nature enclosed in the musical signature DSCH, a cryptogram created by the composer based on the first letters of his name and surname, that is, the thematic musical motif «D – E flat – C – B» used in some of his most significant.
Schostakovich is remembered for his complex relationship with the Soviet Union, when Stalin and Soviet authorities attacked the arts — including Shostakovich’s — that they considered out of line with his nationalist vision.
