Vladimir Spivakov and the NPR are recording Shostakovich

The concert season is over, but Vladimir Spivakov and the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia are now working in the recording studio. The maestro returns to the heritage of his most loved composers, one of whom is Dmitry Shostakovich. “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.
