    Have had a rather draining week and a half, so took the opportunity tonight to sit back and relax with Sibelius 2 (Barbirolli/RPO) and the Dvorak cello concerto (Rostropovich/Giulini/LPO).

    Trying out Shostakovich symphony #8. Solti, Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

    Shostakovich isn't a composure that comes to my mind often, but I had him on the brain last night so I decided to listen. With my very tiny Shostakovich exposure, I feel almost he's like a composer for whom the journey to me is more important than the destination. That I am compelled to listen and absorb some of his work, regardless of whether or not I always like the result.

    I think--and I'm not quite sure--, that for me his music is giving me something mentally even when it doesn't always work to be ear pleasing or fulfilling me emotionally. That may sound like a slight to him, but it's actually not. It just feeds a different musical need that I didn't realize I had, which is a very good thing indeed. I haven't experienced this often at all, Mahler being the other primary example. Though Mahler hits me emotionally and pleases my ear almost always too (probably why he is my favorite second to only Brahms....because he fulfills me melodically, emotionally, AND mentally).
