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 54:

When Glazunov sat down to demonstrate something on the piano, he always stressed the accompanying voice and chromatics, the ascending and descending progressions, which gave his playing fullness and life. / Personally, I feel that this is one of the great secrets of pianism, and the pianist who understands this is on the threshold of great success.
