event organised by the KKE in Athens.
In a two-day cultural event held at the Party's headquarters in Athens, the Attica Party Organisation of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) honoured the legendary Soviet composer and musician Dmitri Shostakovich

The event began with an introductory speech by Themis Gionis, member of the CC of KKE and also member of the Political Bureau of the KKE Attica Party Organisation, who among other things said:

"He honour one of the greatest composers of the 20th century who, with his work, enriched the musical "equipment" of the proletariat in the struggle against capitalism, for the abolition of exploitation of man by man, as well as for the construction of the new society, Socialism"

The event included both speeches about Shostakovich's work as well musical presentation of some of his compositions. Below, we present videos from the music part of the two-day event.
