Shostakovich in Context
The collection presents Shostakovich and his legacy in a variety of different contexts and its interdisciplinary nature will also serve to open up discussion. In this way, it breaks from previous tendencies to focus on the purely extrinsic qualities of the composers musical oeuvre, which has so often been interpreted in terms of autobiography. The chapters span the composer's entire career and contain substantial amounts of new information about Shostakovich and his musical legacy.
this collection makes a very worthwhile contribution to Shostakovich studies, for the brilliance of some of the contributions, for the new information, and for the excellent photographic illustrations (SEER)
