The Musical Oeuvres of Dmitri Shostakovich
The first part of this lecture, dedicated
to the evolution of the composer’s creative
development (early music, the middle period,
the late music) was published in the first
issue of the journal “ICONI” for this year.
The conclusive part of the lecture, published
in this issue, is focused on the determining
philosophical “through” thoroughfares of
Shostakovich’s legacy (the issues of humanism
and artistic constants).
