Dmitri Shostakovich in Zhukovka - 12 June, 1967

from Story of a Friendship. The letters of Dmitry Shostakovich to Isaak Glikman with a commentary by Isaak Glikman, page 144:

Two days ago, Galina Vishnevskaya, David Oistrakh, Mstislav Rostropovich and I had our first rehearsal of my Blok settings. For a first time it was quite respectable. The rehearsal gave me much joy, and for a time I stopped experiencing acutely painful feelings about all kinds of acutely painful events.
