Shostakovich Decoded


  1. As a once upon a time oboe extra with Pacific Symphony I read with satisfaction your discussion about the orchestra’s recent smart marketing. I also recall that just prior to a Tanglewood summer performance of Shostakovitch 5th under the baton of cellist Rostropovitch (1978? 1979?) Shostakovitch’s passing was announced. I was only vaguely aware of the political and social tensions associated with his works. Now, 36 years later, your article has filled in a few gaps for me. All the best. Continued success.
