Do you know there were 3 types of fliers?
～There is no contemporary composer like Shostakovich～
Nobody was more successful in establishing "strong, man's art" than him. While everybody is able to express his/her tenderness, Shostakovich led his life with confident, scattering the dangerous poison though killing no bug, but being a fearsome person even for the dictator who killed a million people-- Isn't it the aspiration of modern people? As other great men, he must have been a lovable timid person as well as normal person with family. However, to his freedom in his heart, or to his discharge of emotion, he was not afraid of his limits. I suspect he did not have any fear like that. I would like to have the ability like him, to express my mantra as large as life even if I achieved acclaim from someone soon after that someone life-threatened me and bended my mantra--of course, not by sophistry, but by leaving the work of music which can be a treasure for human beings. I would like to be a "person nothing except for him" instead of having ability to have good relationships with people using cheap morals, smiling face, and skills to be seen a nice person.
