The symphonies that Shostakovich wrote during the Second World War toed the party line. To find out what he really thought, you have to hear his Second Piano Trio: a no-holds-barred musical autobiography that veers between blistering anger and frozen despair. It’s one of the greatest chamber works of the 20th century. Vaughan Williams’ boisterous early Piano Quintet comes from an altogether happier world – but it’s definitely got something to say!
