Updoc Friday Oct 4 & Tuesday Oct 9

This week’s Updoc—8PM Friday and noon next Tuesday, East Coasting Time—starts off with some recent jazz releases from J.D. Allen, John Ellis, Ian Carey and Matt White with some other things mixed in, but it centers on a symphony from someone dear to Updoc’s heart. Tom Service’s classical music blog in the Guardian has just started discussing fifty symphonies and started off with Beethoven’s Fifth, why not. Service surprised me by turning next to Dmitri Shostakovich’s Fifteenth and last, a piece I’d always felt betrayed a waning of the great man’s powers; but Service went on at length about how ‘enigmatic’ the piece was, with its quotations from Rossini and Wagner—Shostakovich said he didn’t know what they were doing there but couldn’t seem to leave them out—and its shifting moods, and though he did nothing to unpuzzle the enigma he did get me to listen closely. I came away with a renewed regard for the composition which, unlike most of Shostakovich’s late music, is not stilled more than halfway to death but is of an expressive piece with his First and his Ninth, in which mordant comedy gradually discloses a tragic heart. Service thinks that the eerie clickety-clack percussion at the end—what a way to finish the century’s great symphonic cycle!—evokes the life support machines the composer had become all too familiar with, but it’s also an echo of the Fourth Symphony, the one that almost cost the composer his young life. I chose a brusque, no-nonsense performance by Kirill Kondrashin and the Moscow Phil to prevent the music from seeming as diffuse to you as it once did to me. May the enigma deepen in you.screen-shot-2013-09-20-at-122559-am
