Yes, I have to blush here. It was a prelude from Op. 34, the earlier
set, that my son's wind symphony played, not from the more famous Preludes
and Fugues. Still, Op. 87 remains a big hole on my Shostakovich shelf
which I'll be looking to fill. Thanks, Don Satz, for the frank assessment
of the Jarrett; I'll steer clear.
