D. Šostakovič, Symphony no. 14

L. van Beethoven, Symphony no. 7 in A major op. 92

The supremacy of art can be intended as a privileged mean to affirm liberty of thought, sometimes not permitted, to describe the thrill of life and the ineluctability of death. Music seen as the artistic projection of a man in the future, as a guarantee of immortality.
All of these elements are common to the two great symphonic masterpieces, the VII and the XIV, that Beethoven and Shostakovich have left as a pledge of their immortality. We do not have to be confused by the exasperated vitality of Beethoven’s symphony, nor by the gloomy dismalness in Shostakovich. The first masterpiece hides profound suffering and mourn, the other score conceals an obstinate research of the meaning of life.

Gianandrea Noseda
