Soviet Realism, Absolute Power
Swire Classic Insights
Shostakovich and other artists had to survive terrible purges in the 1930s under a regime which insisted that art conform to an official message. Many disappeared without trace for displeasing the authorities. How did Shostakovich work around the restrictions? What happened to more cooperative composers? Hear the music and find out with Jung-Ho Pak in this Swire Classic Insights concert.
