In Rotation: Shostakovich's Cello Cto. No.1
What? Sure signs of aging: cold winter night, alone in the car, stereo up loud, and what I am I listening to? Dmitri Shostakovich's first cello concerto.
Why this? Why today? Who can say? On my way out the door, I headed to the CD shelf, and something guided my hand toward this. Used to be I took a handful of RFTC or Husker Du when I knew there'd be nobody else in the car to complain about the noise. This still rattles the sinuses, but I take it as a sign of maturity that it was my first choice. Can tucking in my shirts be all that far off?
