During Stalin’s reign of terror, Shostakovich’s controversial music came to reflect the desolation of a people. Following on from his book How Shostakovich Changed my Mind, BBC music broadcaster Stephen Johnson explores music’s ability to help mental illness and how his relationship with Shostakovich shaped his battle with bipolar disorder.
