Dmitri Dicing! Druschetzky vs. Shostakovich

Who's best?
The Germans, who make doctrines out of everything, deal with music learnedly; the Italians, being voluptuous, seek in it lively, though fleeting, sensations; the French, more vain than perceptive, manage to speak of it wittily; and the English pay for it . . . - Stendhal

I just can't vote for Shostakovich here.

Actually, the comparative form is 'Who is better?' since you are only dealing with two people.

I have a considerable amount of music from both of them. My preference goes to Druschetzky, but only because I really do like late Classic wind music. I think DSCH is a better composer though. 0:)
