Shostakovich, Prokofiev, and Casella: Music Under Dictatorship

URL Copied
Jerusalem Quartet by Felix Broede

Explore the compelling ways different composers persevered in the face of oppression and war. Shostakovich and Prokofiev created thrilling music—for opera and concert stages—brimming with wit, color, and passion while living under the shadow of Stalin’s reign of terror. Casella blended melodic beauty and emotional power in a symphony composed in Mussolini’s Italy. There’s also an emotionally charged Bartók string quartet written as the clouds of World War II gathered.
