Dmitri Shostakovich in Saint Petersburg - in the beginning of the 1900's

from Dmitry Shostakovich-About Himself and His Times, page 11:

Until I began to learn to play the piano I expressed no desire to learn, although I did feel a certain interest in music. Sometimes when a quartet was playing next door I would listen with my ear to the wall.
