This year marks the centenary of the Russian revolution. Shostakovich, twelve years old, experienced this extraordinary transformation of society which would affect his life and future forever. In 1961 he composed the expansive and fateful Symphony No 12, which portrays the revolutionary Petrograd (St Petersburg), Lenin’s planning of the revolution, the first grenades fired at the Winter Palace from the armoured cruiser Aurora, and finally the triumphant apotheosis with hopes of a better future.
