Shostakovich is a Russian composer. He had a complex and difficult relationship with the government in his early days, but served as a member of the Supreme Soviet of the Soviet Union. As a result, he endured criticism in the musical world. In fact, from his childhood he was extremely interested in social phenomena, such as revolution. This may explain why his music is quite intense and turbulent. The use of the pizzicato technique from the beginning of the piece and even following the piano melody is strangely stimulating.
