I am very found of this concerto. I had the unforgettable experience of seeing this performed live by Tatiana Nikolaeva (Nikolayeva?)once. When she first enters with that "restrained Rachmaninoff" theme of the slow movement, she looked at the audience and smiled....

Thanks! I've always wanted to listen to Shostakovich play his own works, even though I am not his biggest fan by a long shot. The second concerto is far from profound, but it's at the very least amusing!
