Testimony - The Story of Shostakovich DVD

Starring Ben Kingsley, Sherry Baines, Magdalen Asquith, Terence Rigby, Ronald Pickup, John Shrapnel, Robert Stephens

Directed by Tony Palmer



Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich is the subject of this film about his life by Tony Palmer.

Shostsakovich's intensely dramatic music fully matched Palmer's own characteristically dynamic and expressive style.

Central to the film is the relationship between Shostakovitch and Stalin, and the terrible price which Shostakovitch paid for his survival.

Ben Kingsley stars as the composer.
