Muti flies out Shostakovich’s widow

Irina Shostakovich, the composer’s widow, will attend tonight’s Chicago Symphony performance of the Babi Yar Symphony at the invitation of music director Riccardo Muti.

Dmitri Shostakovich is said to have kept in his drawer a tape of Muti’s 1970 performance of the symphony.

        Significa che ha *due* sinfonie Shostakovich nel suo repertorio!
