Shakespeare's King Lear, said to have been written around 1605 or so, has characters who exemplify many of the most disagreeable traits of human nature; deceit, betrayal, jealousy and the ability to inflict physical injury to another are a few of the many. Shakespeare had the special ability to depict humans at their best and at their worst. Verdi admired Shakespeare and composed three highly successful operas based upon his writings; Macbeth, Otello and Falstaff. Though, as Verdi himself revealed on multiple occasions he was never able to complete a composition based upon King Lear although he attempted to do so for most of his creative career. Supposedly prior to his death he destroyed what written examples existed of his efforts. Shostakovich certainly experienced his own examples of human discomfort and distress from multiple events in his lifetime and was compelled to suppress his honest feelings many times although he could reflect those feelings in his music. He and the producer/director of this film were good friends and this score was the result of a close collaboration. Letters between the two reveal that closeness. This music that he composed for this Russian film version of King Lear is dark, brooding, and melancholy. Personal experiences certainly enable an adept musical composer to do this. It is an especially appropriate accompaniment to what is being shown on the screen.
