Footnotes

  • A collection of printed scores, one signed by Shostakovich, another by Vengerov, and all five by Rostropovich. The signatures were obtained by Andrew Mallows, a lifelong Shostakovich enthusiast who collected them at concerts (Shostokovich's at a performance of the Tenth Symphony at the Royal Festival Hall on 23 September 1960). According to his wishes, this and the two following lots were donated to the United Kingdom Shostakovich Society - proceeds from the sale will be used to further the development of the Shostakovich archive and help make it available to the public.
