Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 14 is essentially a song cycle-symphony. Written from his hospital bed, Shostakovich wrote "on the eternal themes of love and death," setting poems by Lorca, Rilke, Apollinaire, and Kuchelbecker. While it may sound like a downer, Shostakovich explained to his audience "My symphony is an impassioned protest against death." He looked to death as an inspiration to make sure that he lived his life to its fullest.
