What's the deal with these three duets? They're so beautiful, so Austrian, so perfectly harmonised...so unlike Shostakovich! What was this man thinking when he composed these duets? Are they a joke? Was he trying to say "Yes I can compose this beautiful music, but I choose to compose the music I normally compose (i.e sometimes/most of the time weird), but this just shows I can"?? Somebody explain?
