Notes & Reviews:
Few symphonies written in modern times have attracted the degree of extra musical speculation accorded Shostakovich's 7th. It became an immediate worldwide symbol of the opposition to the tyranny of Hitler, though today it seems that the Symphony's inspiration may have stemmed as much from Stalin's atrocities during the 1930s as from the brutalities of the Nazi invasion of Russia in June 1941.
