13. Stalin criticized some of Shostakovitch's music.
Edited on Wed Oct-01-08 10:20 AM by Boojatta
For Stalin, criticizing Shostakovitch's music might have inevitably meant criticizing Shostakovitch's political opinions and deciding whether or not to vary his status as a citizen outside the gulag. I hope that we don't need to emulate Stalin's ad hominem attitude.
