What music is this?

Most of the music in this documentary about Sviatoslav Richter is labeled, but the music starting at 1:10:49 for Stalin's death isn't. What's the composer and title? Thanks!

need big pix Stalin pls

Does anyone know where I can find a rather big photo of Josef Stalin online? I'm making an iron-on transfer that will go on a babie's onesie, so it needs to print out at least 4 inches (10cm) wide at 300 dpi. Google image search ain't cuttin' it, but it must be out there.
