This review is from: Shostakovich Against Stalin - The War Symphonies [DVD]  (DVD)
A fascinating study of Shostakovich's life and work between 1935 and 1948 through his symphonies 4-9. Some footage I have never seen before. A word of warning for the purists - great chunks of Testimony are quoted as 'authentic' Shostakovich, without citing where these quotations are from.
