In the run-up to the musicAeterna concert in the St. Petersburg State Capella, Doctor of Art History, one of the leading experts on the creative heritage of Dmitri Shostakovich, author of numerous articles and monographs about the composer Levon Hakobian will expand on one of the 20th century most mysterious monuments of music.
