Translation No. 4 of Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 2
DescriptionShostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 2 is lighter and brighter than his earlier works, and, finally, sounds free of the pain and suffering he conveyed under Stalin's rule. I still see a lot of white when I listen to the second movement, but I also sense a bit of playfulness in the keys. For this painting, I simplified the color palette and played with delicate layers of greens, blues, and browns.
This painting is currently NOT framed, but the sides are painted, and it is wired and ready to hang.
