Other Editions of This Title:
In Leningrad: Siege and Symphony, Brian Moynahan sets the composition of Shostakovich's 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.
