The Conductor – Sarah Quigley

New book by Sarah Quigley.  "‘The Conductor’ is a riveting and brilliant blend of fact and fiction. It tells the story of the writing of Shostakovich’s Seventh Symphony, its historic and moving performance in besieged Leningrad – and the ambitions and passions of two very different but equally compulsive men. Includes a CD of Shostakovich’s Leningrad Symphony" (Sarah Quigley's website).
