That "Prague Congress" took place in the immediate aftermath of two
events: The "Prague Coup" that established a totalitarian Stalinist
dictatorship over the Czechs and Slovaks; and the Zhdanovchina, the
Stalinist witch-hunt that began with ludicrous denunciations of the
only three great Soviet composers--Shostakovich, Prokofiev, and
Khachaturian--before going on to become a veritable pogrom against
Jewish cultural figures like Mikhoels. Western musical figures like
Bush merited everlasting contempt--like that merited by their Nazi
German counterpart Parteigenoss Von Karajan--for their participation
in such a totalitarian travesty!
