Jul 14, 2019 rated it it was amazing
A wonderful book. The perfect antidote to the contentious ‘Testimony’ by Volkov. Arranged chronologically around Ardov’s interviews with his childhood friend Maxim Shostakovich and his older sister Galina about their father Dmitri. The great composer comes across as a witty but grounded person who prized his privacy and family.

I loved this book. Shostakovich is my favorite composer ever and Mijail Árdov, a Russian priest, writes a very entertaining collection of different stories from Shostakovich's friends and family's memories.
