Overview

Dmitri Shostakovich, one of the greatest composers of the twentieth century, was a child of the Russian Revolution. His allegiance to Soviet Russia was never in doubt, yet his music spoke a more ambiguous language, and his refusal to compromise his art led to his temporary fall from grace. In this book, the author has drawn on both Russian and English sources of information.
