Aleksandr Glazunov et al. in Russia - the 1900's

from Testimony- The memoirs of Shostakovich, as related to & edited by Solomon Volkov, page 53:

The celebrities were amazed by Glazunov, and he by them. For instance, Glazunov was awed and astounded by the physical endurance of Egon Petri, whom he talked about for a long time. And why not? Petri played an all-Liszt programme, in one concert, mind you – Don Juan and two sonatas (the B minor and the Dante). It was a champion performance; the result of good nutrition and a peaceful life for three generations.
