Picture of CD of piano music by Shostakovich played by Raymond Clarke
Raymond Clarke plays 24 Preludes, op.34, Sonata no. 1, op.12, Sonata no. 2 in B minor, op.61, and Prelude and Fugue in D minor, op.87, no.24, by Shostakovich.

“Clarke leaves no doubt that he possesses the dual requirements of a formidable technique and an attendant stamina … Clarke’s interpretation is completely successful. Tempo and its modifications are well-chosen throughout. Some of the accelerando passages are quite hair-raising in their intensity… Clarke himself has a profound interest in Shostakovich and a highly developed understanding of his music. This CD is a worthy item for Shostakovich collectors and piano enthusiasts alike.” - Rosemary Cordy (DSCH Journal)
