“Shostakovich’s Piano Trio No. 2, Op. 67, … was written in 1944, just after his Symphony No. 8, with which it shares its overall structure; it is a lamentation for both Shostakovich’s close friend, musicologist Ivan Sollertinsky, and the victims of the Holocaust, the news of which horror did not reach the U.S.S.R. until the liberation of the camps began; and it is his first work to employ a “Jewish theme,” a musical tribute that used the scales and rhythms of Jewish folk music as Shostakovitch knew it. Shostakovitch began composing the trio in December 1943. He had only completed sketches, which he was able to share with Sollertinsky before Sollertinsky’s death in February 1944.”
