Dmitri Shostakovich in Russia - 1934

from Dmitry Shostakovich-About Himself and His Times, page 49:

As far as actual performances are concerned, what stands out most in my mind from 1934 is the Leningrad Music Festival, which was acclaimed in all the capitals of the world, in spite of a number of organisational shortcomings as regards choosing performers, repertoire, etc.
