Artistic Information

DESCRIPTION Dmitri Shostakovich is arguably one of the greatest composers of the 20th century. The commemoration of the 40th anniversary of his death in 2015 offers the opportunity to revisit his life and works. Never before has any filmmaker had the chance to draw on the complete cycle of the composer’s 15 symphonies and all of his 6 concertos brilliantly performed by Valery Gergiev, the Mariinsky Orchestra and top soloists including Daniil Trifonov. Never before has there been an interview partner like Valery Gergiev who knows the works of Shostakovich inside out. In addition, there is rare footage with the composer himself talking and performing his Concerto for Piano, Trumpet and Strings. The documentary will focus on two major events which shattered the composer’s life: the banning of the very successful Opera Lady Macbeth in 1936 and the branding as “formalist and cosmopolitan” in 1948. A Man of many Faces will prove that you can maintain creative freedom even under the terror regime of a dictator like Stalin.
