Shostakovich Prize 2016 Awarded to Gennadi Rozhdestvensky

On 20 January 2016 the International Shostakovich Days in Gohrisch will award the conductor Gennadi Rozhdestvensky the International Shostakovich Prize 2016.

Gennadi Rozhdestvensky is one of the outstanding Shostakovich interpreters of the 20th and 21st centuries. The jury justified their verdict by commenting that his recording of the Shostakovich Symphonies with the USSR Radio Symphony Orchestra is still considered a reference recording today. The prize presentation will be musically accompanied by Rozhdestvensky’s wife, the pianist Viktoria Postnikova, who will perform piano works of Dmitri Shostakovich, amongst others.
