Originally composed as a string quartet, Shostakovich's Chamber Symphony was born out of a personal crisis, as he reluctantly joined the Communist Party. While officially dedicated in memory of victims of "fascism and war," he privately confessed he composed it in memory of himself, fearing otherwise no one else would.
