Leningrad: Siege and Symphony: The Story of the Great City Terrorized by Stalin, Starved by Hitler, Immortalized by Shostakovich by Brian Moynahan
English | 2014 | ISBN: 0802123163, 0802124305 | 496 pages | EPUB | 4 MB
In Leningrad: Siege and Symphony, Brian Moynahan sets the composition of Shostakovichs most famous work-his seventh symphony- against the tragic canvas of the siege itself and the years of repression and terror that preceded it. Using a wealth of new material, Moynahan tells the story of the cruelties inflicted by Stalin and Hitler on a city of exquisite beauty and rich cultural history, and the symphony that inspired its survival.
