Dmitri Shostakovich in Russia - in the beginning of the 1900's

from Testimony- The memoirs of Shostakovich, as related to & edited by Solomon Volkov, page 43:

Sofronitsky and I played together several times, performing Nikolayev’s Variations for Two Pianos. Nikolayev though himself a composer, but he really didn’t have much basis for thinking this. We played the Variations and laughed ourselves. We laughed, but we played.
