On September 25, Dmitri Shostakovich's birthday, Vladimir Spivakov and the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia will present at the Moscow Performing Arts Center a monographic programme featuring only the works by the great symphonist of the 20th century. Shostakovich's music has always had a special place in Vladimir Spivakov's heart. “Dmitri Dmitrievich was a historiographer, says the maestro. - He managed to create immortal   monuments of the era, therefore life will change,  governments will change, many things will change, but Dmitri Dmitrievich will remain forever. His works reflected his epoch as in a mirror, but the depth of his music makes it appropriate for any time. Its radiant  sparkles penetrate the soul of a modern person and inevitably affect us." It should be mentioned that in 2015, due to Vladimir Spivakov's initiative, the first monument to Dmitry Shostakovich was erected in Moscow on the terrace of the main staircase to the Svetlanov Hall of the Moscow Performing Arts Center.

Denis Matsuev, in turn, remarks: “Vladimir Spivakov is a true master of accompaniment! In the score, he finds really unique nuances that can escape the soloist with  other conductors.
