Having spent the 1980s waiting for someone else to do this, I decided, after reading that concert review, that if there really was no other writer in English both capable of the task and willing to carry it out, it had finally fallen to me, if only by default. I took this decision reluctantly, inasmuch as I regarded myself (as I still do) as merely a rank-and-file admirer of Shostakovich's music. However, I was spurred on by the fact that most of the so-called "experts" on Shostakovich in the West were (as they still are) little more than functional technicians with no grasp of history or cultural context, let alone any insight into the crucial role which these and other elements play in the formation of musical expression. Because of this, their "interpretations" of the composer's music consisted then, as they do today, mainly of empty exercises in meaningless formal analysis - a kind of critical autism unworthy of an advanced civilisation. I wrote knowing that saying this would draw a barrage of hostile fire.
