Dmitri Shostakovich in Moscow - July, 1969

from Story of a Friendship. The letters of Dmitry Shostakovich to Isaak Glikman with a commentary by Isaak Glikman, page 166:

While we were in Dilizhan the composer Avset Terterian acquainted me with some of his compositions. He seems very talented to me. Apart from these pieces, I heard no other works new to me, although I did hear a gramophone record of Edgar Oganesian’s Saxophone Concerto and also Aleksandr Glazunov’s Saxophone Concerto. I liked the Oganesian; Glazunov’s concerto was so bad it made me want to cry.
