Many thanks! A very interesting work from 1976 dedicated to the memory of Shostakovich (of course, including the D-S-C-H motive) in one continous movement. A sort of long lament, expressive and convincing. Of course, it shows Babadjanian from a more modern side than, say, his "Heroic Ballad", though there are still links to tonality. I am happy to be able to add it to my collection.

Hi Holger,
 Interesting how many works were composed in memoriam Shostakovich. I like Yuri Levitin's work and recently came across a few more on a rare Melodiya LP. See downloads section.

Hi Robert,

many thanks for sharing the Levitin LP you are referring to it is new to me in fact. I am currently in process of downloading it.

You are correct about the many works written in memory of Shostakovich. Of course, Weinberg's Symphony No. 12 and Tishchenko's Symphony No. 5 immediately come to our minds, but in addition there is also Bibik's Symphony No. 4, Gabichvadze's Chamber Symphony No. 4 (= probably Symphony No. 7), Cvdət Hacıyev's String Quartet No. 3 (in fact the second part of a Dilogy in memory of Shostakovich), Mansurian's Cello Concerto No. 1, an Adagio for String Orchestra by Tatyana Smirnova, Tsintsadze's String Quartet No. 9 and still more pieces (including music by non-Soviet composers). That's really quite a bunch, which reflects Shostakovich's stature and influence as seen by his contemporarites of course.

Well, he was the composer of his time.  He summed up the generation better than anyone else, was an educator who impacted subsequent generations, and frankly seemed to be a very good man.  There is no dirt or negativity towards others.  I've never heard him say anything negative about anyone.
