Shostakovich kitty picture

From Alex Ross: The Rest is Noise:

“According to the notes in this new Naxos release…the photograph was taken on June 28, 1925, two days before the completion of the First. It comes from the DSCH Archive in Moscow.”

Have you encountered any other noted composers with cats? (John Cage is a well-known example.)

  1. I was about to mention John Cage! If I remember correctly there were a number of nice photos in a BBC obituary for John Cage.
