I remember in particular one experience with Rimski-Korsakov. It happened in St. Petersburg when Siloti took me to a performance of one of Rimski-Korsakov’s operas at the Maryinsky Theater. During the intermission after the first act, Glazunov – he had been a pupil of Rimski-Korsakov – came to me, “I’ve just been talking with Nikolai Andreevich, and he’s nervous because you’re here. He’s afraid you won’t like the music.” Imagine the modesty of the man! He was then in his sixties and at the height of his career, and I was not yet thirty. I felt embarrassed to reply. But I asked Glazunov to please let Rimski-Korsakov, and I told him how much I loved his music. And he evidenced such appreciation!
