This is the 100th anniversary of the birth of my favorite composer, Dimitri SHOSTAKOVICH. BBC Radio 3 will be playing a good deal of his works. You can catch them using the BBC Radio Player
as well as some wonderful links
. The 13 February Performance on 3
program had an excellent concert
of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 12, The Year 1917, and Symphony No. 13, Babi Yar (featuring Yevtushenko's poem) by the BBC Philharmonic (Vassily Sinaisky, cond.).
