Shostakovich's 10th Symphony

I was going through YouTube today and found this video of the 2nd movement of Symphony No. 10 by Dmitri Shostakovich:


On this day in 1953, this work received its world premiere. According to sources, this movement was Shostakovich's musical depiction of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin.

(BTW, the orchestra and conductor are the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Sir Georg Solti.)
