The play consists of two parts. In the first, voices of witnesses of history, past generations and half-forgotten ancestors sound. The second part, Shostakovich, is dedicated to the fate of the famous composer who alone confronts the world in which poets are shot and to which pianoforte beats.
People who suddenly find themselves in a roaring timelessness cry out to the images of the collective memory of the great people, fragile silence pierces the original sound and the shapeless dark spots of freshly dyed paint begin to come to life ... Like the mediums, the actors become the conductors of past generations narrating about their fate from Abraham to the Holocaust. The rustle of quiet voices grows into a roar, and none of the witnesses of the events will be able to escape from this vortex of memories.
The second part is devoted not only to the famous composer, but also to all those for whom the orders of the Motherland were incompatible with life. A small, Charlie Chaplin-like person, from birth, was imprisoned in the power of his talent and tough realities of the country, which he could not allow for the existence of such. This confrontation of genius and regime turned out to be not for life, but for death, and precisely for this reason, not tanks, but tin pianos, fight to the music of the "Leningrad Symphony", which is habitually associated with the invasion of enemy troops.
“ The play is a revelation, every image, every sound cuts into the memory. Incredible Dmitry Krymov. Sneaky Anna Sinyakina. Man-made, from pieces of paper and paint buckets, a miracle.
