A message from Irina Shostakovich, wife of Dmitiri Shostakovich...
"I am happy to welcome an effort by two remarkable musicians, Stanislav Ioudenitch and Alexey Goribol, to host a Shostakovich chamber music festival in Kansas. Shostakovich’s music received wide acclaim in the United States after his First Symphony’s debut in Philadelphia. Its influence lives on. The program is built with exquisite taste and deep understanding of the world of Shostakovich’s music. I am sure that the festival will be appreciated by listeners and will be received as an important music event."
