Irina Shostakovich


Recommended Posts

Just to say that Irina Shostakovich, the composer's widow, was brought on to the stage of the Bolshoi for a live interview during the interval of The Golden Age cinema transmission. She spoke well about Shostakovich's difficulties following an article called “Ballet Falsehood” that appeared in Pravda in early 1936 (she was only born in 1935 and didn't marry him till the 1960s but is still a first hand witness to the lifelong impact of the attack).
