This review is from: Shostakovich Against Stalin - The War Symphonies (Gergiev) [DVD]  (DVD)
This DVD offers a fascinating and easy-to-follow account of Shostakovich's fraught relationship with the regime. He came within one day of being despatched to the gulag and was saved only by the fact that they got to the prosecutor first. You might only watch it once, but it's worth the money.
