A People's Music

Tuesday 27 June 2006 13:30-14:00 (Radio 4 FM)


2006 is the 100th anniversary year of the birth of the great Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich. It's said that his music was always written for the Russian people whom he lived among and loved; it was 'the people's music'.

Aware of this, the award winning young violinist Ruth Palmer went on a personal journey to find images and inspiration as she prepared to record his monumental 1st Violin Concerto with the Philharmonia Orchestra.
