19 of the 24 piano preludes of Op. 34 were transcribed for violin and piano by Dmitri Zyganov, longtime first violinist of the Beethoven String Quartet and a friend of the composer, in the 1930s. Shostakovich stated, “When I hear the transcriptions, I forget meanwhile that I actually composed the Preludes for piano. They sound so violinistic.” Auerbach completed the violin/piano arrangement of the remaining five preludes in 2000.
