This is a story from the Famous Composers collection.
Following on the success of The Story of Classical Music, Darren Henley and Marin Alsop combine forces again to tell, in more detail, the lives of six key composers: Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart, Beethoven, Dvorak, and Shostakovich. Their colourful lives and their love of music are told against the backdrop of some of their finest works, an ideal combination.

Cosa pensano gli ascoltatori di Shostakovich
distortion of the facts
I appreciate that this is only 19 min very high level information, trying to highlight the most important things in the life of the Great composer. Still some facts are misrepresented. Be careful if you base any analysis on this work.
