Zoya Shuhatovich plays Shostakovich

Web exclusive

If Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich wasn’t going to be held back by Stalin’s regime, then by God, he wasn’t going to be held back by stylistic constraints, either. His music contains elements of Russian folk, jazz and early European classical music. Virtuoso pianist Zoya Shuhatovich, who is frequently featured on NPR, will play 12 selections from the great composer’s 24 Preludes (op. 34) today at 7:30 p.m. Russian Cultural Center, 2337 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-395-3301 or visit ourtx.org/shostakovich2009.html. Seating is limited. $15.
Mon., Sept. 14, 7:30 p.m., 2009
