Composer: Dmitri Dmitriyevich Shostakovich (25 September 1906 – 9 August 1975) -Text: Yevgeny Aleksandrovich Yevtushenko -Bass: Sergei Aleksashkin -Chorus.

Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 13 in B-flat minor (Op. 113), often called Babi Yar after the Yevtushenko poem in the first movement, was completed on July 20, 1962, and first performed in Moscow in December of that year. The hour-long work requires a bass soloist, men's chorus, and large orchestra and is laid out in five movements, each a setting of a Yevgeny Yevtushenko poem. This unusual form gives rise to various descriptions: choral symphony, song cycle, giant cantata.

After the war, Yevgeny Yevtushenko composed a poem in honour of the fallen of Babi Yar, taking the ruling post-Stalinist government to task for the rising anti-Semitism and neglect of remembering the massacre and other attendant atrocities. Yevtushenko's poem was written in 1961; it would not be published in the Soviet Union until 1984.
