from Dmitry Shostakovich-About Himself and His Times, page 180:
How well I remember my acquaintance with Vladimir Nemirovich-Danchenko, who produced my opera Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk in his Moscow theatre. I shall never forget his deep understanding of my music and his bold interpretation of the characters.
