Dmitri Shostakovich - the 1900's

from Testimony- The memoirs of Shostakovich, as related to & edited by Solomon Volkov, page 3:

Mother studied at the Petersburg Conservatoire with Rozanova, the same woman to whom she later took me. She played the piano rather well. There’s nothing particularly significant in that, for in those days there were many more amateur musicians than there are now. Take my neighbour’s quartet, for instance.
