Uploaded on 16 Sep 2011
We all wonder from time to time how things look on "other " side" , but resign to the thought that nobody came back from "there" to tell us how things are. With a few exceptions...
Dante had created his own , albeit imagined , Inferno. Shostakovich descended a real inferno, lived through it and came out alive to tell the story , to bear a testimony to the hell on earth. What else can you call it when people -- bright , thinking , loving people -- millions of them - are sentenced to living on 125 grams a day of 50% sawdust bread ration ( and only those able-bodied or well-connected ) , then to eating their pets and pests, belts and shoes ( with scraped off the walls wallpaper paste being an exquisite delicacy ) , then -- their dead , and then -- their living...
This September ( 8th- 21st ) marks 70th anniversary of beginning of Siege of Leningrad, one of the deadliest and darkest episodes in the history of European civilization (if you can still call it a "civilization"). This magnificent city rightly called Venice of the North , a cradle of modern Russia, a hotbed of progressive thought, a showcase of best in Russian art, music, literature -- predestined to the most cruel of death of starvation by two tyrants, dictators -- who despite being on opposing sides of a war , shared a common hatred of humanity. In 900 days of the siege , 1 500 000 people died -- out of population of 2.5 million. Shostakovich , abandoned as the rest of population of Leningrad , lived through it and continued composing. His 7th, "Leningrad" Symphony -- sheet music smuggled across the enemy lines and performed around the globe , was a call of defiance , a promise of eventual victory, of imminent triumph of life over death.
There is nothing triumphal about this sonata. Instead, it is a sad and subdued reflection, a testimony of a witness to an abyss of human suffering and death. Everything is warped here: a waltz turns into a funeral procession, usually "happy" major key episodes are the most sinister and menacing...
First movement is full of foreboding and unease. There are two main themes here . The opening one - in a minor key, rather sad and very sincere . The second theme , in a blazing major key , reminiscent of those awful Soviet-era patriotic marches. If only you can call music "creepy", this theme is a definition of it.
Second movement is a slow and unsteady waltz, constantly on a verge of falling apart. It is more a reminiscence of happier times than a real dance. Waltz bore a special significance in lives of people. It was waltz that commenced a graduation from school , it was waltz that was a first dance at the wedding....In the middle of the movement waltz gives way to bone-chilling half-march half-sarabande theme. You can hear steps of funeral procession , except those steps are hesitant and halting: just like in the "iconic" Leningrad documentary videos of starvelings dragging their deceased in makeshift sleds to common pits while those still alive walk by unfazed.
Third movement to follow...


Dmitri Dmitriyevich Shostakovich (Russian: About this sound Дми́трий Дми́триевич Шостако́вич (help·info), tr. Dmitriy Dmitrievich Shostakovich, pronounced [ˈdmʲitrʲɪj ˈdmʲitrʲɪɪvʲɪtɕ ʂəstɐˈkovʲɪtɕ]; 25 September [1]1906 – 9 August 1975) was a Soviet composer and pianist, and a prominent figure of 20th-century music.

Shostakovich achieved fame in the Soviet Union under the patronage of Soviet chief of staff Mikhail Tukhachevsky, but later had a complex and difficult relationship with the government. Nevertheless, he received accolades and state awards and served in the Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR (1947–1962) and the Supreme Soviet of the Soviet Union (from 1962 until his death).

A poly-stylist, Shostakovich developed a hybrid voice, combining a variety of different musical techniques into his music. Shostakovich's music is characterized by sharp contrasts, elements of the grotesque, and ambivalent tonality; the composer was also heavily influenced by the neo-classical style pioneered by Igor Stravinsky, and (especially in his symphonies) by the post-Romanticism associated with Gustav Mahler.

Shostakovich's orchestral works include 15 symphonies and six concerti. His chamber output includes 15 string quartets, a piano quintet, two piano trios, and two pieces for string octet. His piano works include two solo sonatas, an early set of preludes, and a later set of 24 preludes and fugues. Other works include three operas, several song cycles, ballets, and a substantial quantity of film music; especially well known is The Second Waltz, Op. 99, music to the film The First Echelon (ru) (1955–1956), as well as the Suites composed for The Gadfly.

Russian military parade: Cinderella

In Kaliningrad, during the military parade, one of the participants lost a shoe - in the manner of Cinderella - but continues to march. The head of the Baltic Sea Fleet arranged to reward the girl without a shoe for iron discipline: she did not exit the line and kept the array.

DOJ committed ‘gross abuse’ of power in asking to drop case against ex-Trump advisor Michael Flynn, says former judge tapped to review request

"A former federal judge on Wednesday blasted the U.S. Justice Department for what he called 'a gross abuse of prosecutorial power' in seeking to drop its criminal case against Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump’s first national security advisor."

"'The Government has engaged in highly irregular conduct to benefit a political ally of the President', the ex-judge, John Gleeson, wrote in a scathing legal filing opposing the proposed dismissal of Flynn’s case."

"Gleeson also wrote that Flynn 'has indeed committed perjury' in his statements to Judge Emmet Sullivan during proceedings in the case, 'for which he deserves punishment'."

Urgent! Hot news: The brutal murder of the greatest Afro-Russian Poet!

The latest night of protests in New York City, Minneapolis, Denver, Phoenix and Columbus sparked by the death of the Great Afro-Russian Poet Alexander Pushkin at the hands of white rasist Georges d'Anthès was markedly calmer. Protesters destroy police property, tear a pages from his books and burn - to be blunt, all of them cannot read or write.

Festival and fireworks were dedicated to Pushkin's birthday, the 6th of June.

Elon Musk: "The trampoline is working!" :)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZkfrjwoEMI EN

[The Moscow Times]

Russian space agency chief Dmitry Rogozin once ridiculed the lack of a U.S. manned flight programme, saying it might as well "deliver its astronauts to the ISS by using a trampoline".

Six years later Elon Musk and NASA had the last laugh.

"The trampoline is working," quipped the 48-year-old U.S. entrepreneur at a post-flight news conference alongside NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine.

Both men laughed. "It's an inside joke," Musk added.

On Saturday, his SpaceX made history by becoming the first commercial company to send humans into orbit.

The U.S. feat and Musk's joke set Russian social media alight, with wits ridiculing Rogozin, and the Russian space chief's name began trending on Twitter.

"How do you like this, Dmitry Rogozin?" one critic prodded.

Russia still prides itself on sending the first human into orbit in 1961 and other achievements of the Soviet-era space programme.

Rogozin has remained conspicuously silent but his spokesman was forced to react.

"We don't really understand the hysteria sparked by the successful launch of a Crew Dragon spacecraft," spokesman Vladimir Ustimenko said on Twitter.

"What should have happened a long time ago happened," he added.

While cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev, Roscosmos executive director for crewed space programmes, saluted the US achievement in a brief video address, not everyone was in such a gracious mood.

Alexey Pushkov, a member of the upper house of parliament, declared Saturday's flight was not a big deal.

"This is a flight to the International Space Station, not to Mars," he said on messaging app Telegram.

He pronounced it time to stop ferrying Americans to the orbiting lab.

"Russia needs spaces for its own young cosmonauts."

Russia: Seminude nurse against virus

(of course, she was punished)

Очевидец сделал снимок из Тульской областной больницы, где на фото отчетливо видно, что девушка-медик одета в защитный костюм, который просвечивает ее нижнее белье.

Предположительно, девушка решила уберечь себя от чрезмерной жары, которую ей предстояло испытать, надев в очередной раз на себя защитный медицинский костюм. Поэтому, предприимчивая тулячка решила облегчить свое состояние, надев костюм на голое тело, которое было предварительно обличено в купальник. Однако, медработник не учла, что ее униформа обладает достаточно сильным просвечивающим эффектом, поэтому нижнее белье девушки смогли оценить не только коллеги, но и пациенты во время ее обхода по палатам. Опираясь на комментарии и примечания в социальных сетях, мужчины были вовсе не против такого “дефиле”, а лишь неловко поглядывали на медика и улыбались.

На такой “медицинский шок” отреагировал и региональный Минздрав:

- По факту несоблюдения требований к медицинской одежде сотрудником Тульской областной клинической больницы минздрав сообщает, что к нарушившей данные требования медсестре инфекционного госпиталя применено дисциплинарное взыскание в виде замечания. С персоналом медучреждения проведена разъяснительная беседа, сотрудники уведомлены о необходимости соблюдения требований к санитарной одежде и внешнему виду. Усилен контроль за работой сотрудников, ответственных за порядок использования специальной одежды и средств индивидуальной защиты, - пояснило ситуацию Управление.

Отметим, что такой “голый конфуз” не вызвал у туляков агрессии, а лишь поднял настроение и повысил чувство юмора жителей области.

Sophisticated Soviet spy radio discovered buried in former forest in Germany | Live Science
The radio has been identified as a model R-394KM transmitter and receiver — code-named "Strizh," meaning "Swift" — that was manufactured in the Soviet Union in 1987. It was carried by agents into Western Europe shortly after that, and only a few years before the fall between 1989 and 1991 of the "Iron Curtain" of communism that divided Eastern and Western Europe.

The faces of Lev Tolstoy (colored by klimbim)

Count Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy, Russian: Лев Николаевич Толстой; 9 September [O.S. 28 August] 1828 – 20 November [O.S. 7 November] 1910), usually referred to in English as Leo Tolstoy, was a Russian writer who is regarded as one of the greatest authors of all time. He received multiple nominations for Nobel Prize in Literature every year from 1902 to 1906, and nominations for Nobel Peace Prize in 1901, 1902 and 1910, and the fact that he never won is a major Nobel prize controversy.

Born to an aristocratic Russian family in 1828, he is best known for the novels War and Peace (1869) and Anna Karenina (1877), often cited as pinnacles of realist fiction. He first achieved literary acclaim in his twenties with his semi-autobiographical trilogy, Childhood, Boyhood, and Youth (1852–1856), and Sevastopol Sketches (1855), based upon his experiences in the Crimean War. Tolstoy's fiction includes dozens of short stories and several novellas such as The Death of Ivan Ilyich (1886), Family Happiness (1859), and Hadji Murad (1912). He also wrote plays and numerous philosophical essays.

In the 1870s Tolstoy experienced a profound moral crisis, followed by what he regarded as an equally profound spiritual awakening, as outlined in his non-fiction work A Confession (1882). His literal interpretation of the ethical teachings of Jesus, centering on the Sermon on the Mount, caused him to become a fervent Christian anarchist and pacifist. Tolstoy's ideas on nonviolent resistance, expressed in such works as The Kingdom of God Is Within You (1894), were to have a profound impact on such pivotal 20th-century figures as Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. Tolstoy also became a dedicated advocate of Georgism, the economic philosophy of Henry George, which he incorporated into his writing, particularly Resurrection (1899).

The faces of Anton Chekhov (colored by klimbim)

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (Russian: Антон Павлович Чехов; 29 January 1860 – 15 July 1904 was a Russian playwright and short-story writer who is considered to be among the greatest writers of short fiction in history. His career as a playwright produced four classics, and his best short stories are held in high esteem by writers and critics. Along with Henrik Ibsen and August Strindberg, Chekhov is often referred to as one of the three seminal figures in the birth of early modernism in the theatre. Chekhov practiced as a medical doctor throughout most of his literary career: "Medicine is my lawful wife", he once said, "and literature is my mistress."

On this day, 25 January 1911 Kanno Sugako, a Japanese anarchist feminist, was executed for her part in a plot to assassinate the Emperor. She remains the only woman to be executed in Japan for treason.

Radicalised at the age of 14 after being raped, she was one of Japan's first female journalists and advocates of women's rights, as well as a prolific writer of fiction and non-fiction. She was inspired by Sophia Perovskaya, who helped assassinate the Russian Tsar.

Sugako had admitted her guilt, as had her half-dozen or so co-conspirators. But 24 anarchists, who were mostly innocent, were sentenced to death, which enraged Sugako, who had accepted her own sentence.

In her prison diary she wrote: "I am convinced our sacrifice is not in vain. It will bear fruit in the future. I am confident that because I firmly believe my death will serve a valuable purpose I will be able to maintain my self-respect until the last moment on the scaffold. I will be enveloped in the marvellously comforting thought that I am sacrificing myself for the cause. I believe I will be able to die a noble death without fear or anguish."

In her final entry she wrote of her happiness upon learning that 12 of her fellow defendants were reprieved, and whose lives were spared.
