Abstract
The Michelangelo Suite of Shostakovich is an important work in the late output of the composer. The question of its meaning is a complicated one. This paper argues for an interpretation that is based on the Neo-Platonic ideas that are inherent in the poems of Michelangelo, on which the work is based. This uncovering of a Neo-Platonic line in Shostakovich's last work is offered as an alternative for the narrow political readings that are still standard in Shostakovich research.
