Dmitri Shostakovich in Soviet Union - 1965

from Dmitry Shostakovich-About Himself and His Times, page 270:

 

In 1965 I travelled widely in the Soviet Union. I took part in the Leningrad Spring Music Festival, and in November, when the Leningraders came to Moscow, I again had a chance to hear interesting works both by young composers and by the established composers of the older generation. I tried not to miss a single concert. In the summer I attended a ten-day festival of Russian art in Armenia and took part in a plenary session of the Composers’ Union at Ioshkar-Ola.
