Isaak Glikman et al. in Zhukovka - 12 September, 1974

from Story of a Friendship. The letters of Dmitry Shostakovich to Isaak Glikman with a commentary by Isaak Glikman, page 198:

Some hours before the performance Shostakovich and I came in to the city from Zhukovka to hear Moysey Vainberg play through the Michelangelo Sonnets on the piano, which he did magnificently. I listened to the Suite with a rare feeling of excitement, and Shostakovich similarly found it hard to control his emotions.
