Dmitri Shostakovich in Moscow - 5 October, 1969

from Story of a Friendship. The letters of Dmitry Shostakovich to Isaak Glikman with a commentary by Isaak Glikman, page 168:

Yesterday I went to the opening of the concert season, where I heard Prokofiev’s 'Zdravitsa' and his Classical Symphony. The second half of the concert was Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Unfortunately the whole programme (conducted by Yevgeny Svetlanov) was rather indifferently done, and afforded me little pleasure.
