Marina Frolova-Walker will be talking about her latest book, published this March, 'Stalin's Prize', in which she looks at the musicians and composers who received Stalin Prizes, awarded annually to artists whose work was thought to represent the best in Soviet culture. Her book sheds new light on Stalin's personal tastes, and the lives and careers of those honoured, including multiple-recipients Prokofiev and Shostakovich.
Marina Frolova-Walker is Professor of Music History and a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge University, where she is also Director of Studies in Music.
