Dmitri Shostakovich: Concerto for Piano, Trumpet and Strings in C minor – Dmitri Shostakovich, Orchestre National de France, André Cluytens (Audio video)

Shostakovich pursued a promising career as a pianist before he decided to concentrate on composing. He played Beethoven, Schumann, Chopin and other great romantic composers on the concert platform, and also took part in the first Russian performance of Stravinsky's Les noces. After 1930 he played only his own works in public, and recorded a good many of them in Russia. [...] Cluytens and the French Radio National Orchestra support the great composer in a highly sympathetic, adroit fashion and in the First Concerto Ludovic Vaillant gives a brilliant account of the solo trumpet part.
