The War Symphonies: Shostakovich Against Stalin
Director: Larry Weinstein, Music by Dmitri Shostakovich
THE WAR SYMPHONIES: SHOSTAKOVICH AGAINST STALIN delves into the harrowing subject of Stalin's bloody purge on Russia and Shostakovich's musical counterattack. The Symphonies Four to Nine (1936-1945) are the composer's weapons against Stalin's rampart bloodletting, or as Shostakovich calls them - his "tombstones".
Shot on location in St. Petersburg and Moscow, THE WAR SYMPHONIES features the passionate musicmaking of Valery Gergiev with The Netherlands Radio Philharmonic and the Orchestra of Mariinsky Theater.
