About

How did artists survive in the Soviet Union? How tricky did they have to be in the face of authorities? What kind of danger and difficulties did they have to fear? Sviatoslav Richter and Gennady Rozhdestvensky talk about authorities, watchdogs and the political system in the former Soviet Union. As a bonus, the release includes a recording of Richter playing Mozart’s Piano Concerto no.9 in E flat major, K271, in 1966 which has never been released on DVD before.
