Dmitri Shostakovich:
Piano Trio in E minor, Op. 67
Dmitri Shostakovich composed his Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op. 67 in the wake of tragedy: on February 11, 1944, one of his closest friends had died suddenly of a heart attack. His creativity paralyzed by grief, Shostakovich did not complete the piano trio until August of that year. Shostakovich, however, was not the first composer to write an elegiac piano trio in memory of a loved one. In 1882, Tchaikovsky dedicated his Piano Trio in A minor, Op. 50 to his departed friend and mentor, Nikolay Rubinstein, and when Tchaikovsky passed away in November 1893, Rachmaninoff paid tribute to the composer with his Trio élégiaque No. 2. A year later, Arensky composed his own elegiac trio in memory of cellist Karl Davydov. This apparent musical tradition seems to have formed its roots in 1855 with Smetana’s Piano Trio in G minor, which he composed following the loss of his daughter. Although nearly a century separates Smetana’s Piano Trio from that of Shostakovich, the two works both communicate the same raw emotions deep, debilitating sadness, flashes of anger, and precious moments of hope that are inseparable from mourning.
