In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya talks about her husband, Rodion Shchedrin, and his music. Shchedrin composed music for such works as The Little Humpbacked Horse, Anna Karenina, The Seagull, and Lady with the Dog. He was always in the shadow of the spotlight of Maya's success, but never suffered from it. Maya admits that it is complicated when two artists live side by side, but they supported each other. She attended the premiere of Shchedrin's The Old-Time Music of Russian Circuses in Chicago, performed by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Loren Maazel. She was also at the premiere of the Fourth Piano Concerto at the Kennedy Center with Nikolai Petrov and Slava Rostropovich. Shchedrin became chairman of the Union of Composers of Russia, founded by Dmitri Shostakovich who was also its first chairman, and was a member of the Moscow Tribune as well as the Interregional Group of Deputies.
