In 1949, Shostakovich was given the job of writing the score for The Fall of Berlin, an epic of the Great Patriotic War wrapped around a love story, and, in 1951, The Unforgettable Year 1919, another war movie, this one set during the civil war that followed the revolution. As these dedicated recordings by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra under the singularly named Adriano conclusively demonstrate, Shostakovich 's music here is truly, deeply, profoundly, and appallingly awful. His melodies are banal. His colors are primary. His rhythms are elementary. His forms are rudimentary.
The unforgettable year 1919 : suite, op. 89a. Introduction ; Romance (Meeting of Shibayev with Katya) ; Scene from the sea battle ; Scherzo ; The assault on the Red hill ; intermezzo ; Finale. Shostakovich, Dmitriĭ Dmitrievich, 1906-1975. Moscow Symphony Orchestra ; Adriano, conductor ; Moscow Capella & Youth Chorus; Ellena Alekseyeva, piano. Recorded at Mosfilm Studios, Moscow, Russia, Mar. 2000.
The orchestra was able to play the symphony all the way through only once before the concert. Despite the poor condition of the performers, the concert was highly successful, prompting an hour-long ovation. The concert was supported by a Soviet military offensive, code-named Squall, intended to silence German forces during the performance. Shostakovich wanted the Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra to première the symphony, but that group had been evacuated to Novosibirsk as part of the government-led cultural exodus. The world première was instead held in Kuybyshev on 5 March 1942, performed by the Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra under conductor Samuil Samosud. The Unforgettable Year 1919.
