Dmitri Shostakovich in Russia - the 1900's

from Testimony- The memoirs of Shostakovich, as related to & edited by Solomon Volkov, page 30:

Another of Glière’s works that has unflagging popularity is Hymn to a Great City. I shudder every time I get off the Red Arrow Express at Leningrad Station because Glière’s composition blares from every loud-speaker. The travellers duck their heads and walk faster.
