Shostakovich the enigma, Tchaikovsky the crowd-pleaser
Tuesday,  Jan 2,2018,16:33 (GMT+7)
Dmitri Shostakovich is one of the great enigmas of classical music. He was the most celebrated composer of the Stalin era, but his music is almost invariably morose and darkly brooding. Was this because he was himself a clinically depressive, or was he trying to say things that the Stalinist tyranny wouldn’t allow him to say openly, or even at all?

An awesome Nutcracker once again
Tuesday,  Dec 12,2017,18:37 (GMT+7)
There are many reasons why Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker makes such a compelling entertainment. There’s the Christmas element, of course, a Christmas Eve party followed by a scene in a veritable winter wonderland. Then there’s the color and the exoticism – dances from supposedly distant lands and flights of imagination among falling snowflakes. Variety, too, plays its part, with social party dances alternating with mythic figures out of a land of dreams. All these add up to making Nutcracker an unfailing attraction worldwide.
