Symphony No. 7 by D. Shostakovich is performed by the Czech Philharmonic in Dvořák Hall of Rudolfinum

Dmitri Shostakovich refused to evacuate from Leningrad, surrounded by the German army, and wrote a new symphony, the premiere of which was broadcast on radio during the siege in 1942. Semyon Bychkov has close family ties to the event – his mother lived through the siege in Leningrad.
