Dmitri Shostakovich - in the middle of the 1900's

from Dmitry Shostakovich-About Himself and His Times, page 296:

Gustav Ernesaks is a brilliant master, and I am happy that he has been awarded the Lenin Prize. I have heard many excellent male choirs, both Soviet and foreign, but the superb ensemble started up by Gustav Ernesaks, which recently celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary, is the best of the lot. For this reason I particularly looked forward to the première of my ballades.
