Dmitri Shostakovich in Russia - 1956

from Dmitry Shostakovich-About Himself and His Times, page 181:

I recently heard excellent performances of my Violin Concerto by the young violinists M. Vaiman and Julian Sitkovetsky. / I think very highly of our Soviet performers, among whom there is a great deal of first-rate talent. I appreciate them not only as a listener, but also as a kind of ‘client’, who has the satisfaction of hearing his own music played well.
