Abstract:

"The last of a long line of distinguished Russian aristocrats, Yevgeny Mravinsky emerges from the 20th-century musical scene as an exceptional treasure of Soviet culture. His friendship of some forty years with Dmitri Shostakovich led to the public consideration of Shostakovich's music despite its condemnation in the influential Soviet newspaper Pravda. His associations with many other prominent musicians, as well, helped bring their works into the public's consciousness."

"In Yevgeny Mravinsky: The Noble Conductor, the family history, formative life events, and musical accomplishments of this influential musician are chronicled, revealing an introverted musician who expressed himself only when interpreting the scores he conducted. His life reveals much about the psychology and credo of Soviet artists. Enriched with rare photographs of Mravinsky in his various milieus, as well as a helpful chronology, this book will be of great assistance to students of Russian history, music history, and the creative process."--Jacket.
