And you thought relations with Russia were bad now…

Travel back to the frosty days of the Cold War, where proxy wars simmer between the intelligence agencies of the USSR and USA, and the battlefield includes prominent musicians of the era.

The CIA disseminates propaganda portraying the Russian musical legend Dmitri Shostakovich as a Soviet stooge shackled by Socialist Realism. Meanwhile, JFK insists that the arts can only flourish in “free societies.”

Featuring PostClassical Ensemble, pianist Benjamin Pasternack, Ashley Smith as President John F. Kennedy and commentary by former CIA historian Nicholas Dujmovic.
