Translation No. 4 of Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 2 - Original Painting on Canvas
Shostakovich'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.
