DMITRY SHOSTAKOVICH: “LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!”

The true scale of the composer Dmitry Shostakovich, widely known not only in Russia but also beyond its borders, can only be defined with the words “great, talented”. The more talented a person is, the less behind all his achievements we notice exactly the person himself. Critics and musicologists write great articles about what the composer wanted to show in a particular piece. What emotions or experiences seethed in him during the writing of the work.

It has long been known that diligent guys do not become rockers, and even more so do not arouse interest in the audience. No wonder they say: if they don’t write about you, then you have already died. And these brawlers are more alive than all living, despite the rampant lifestyle. Only a few succeed in this. Many of their colleagues have long gone to another world because of the harmful effects of drugs and alcohol, fatal illnesses, or suicides. Continue reading
