Dmitri Shostakovich in Novosibirsk - 1966

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


I have just returned from a trip to Novosibirsk, whose Symphony Orchestra – one of the best in Siberia, with its conductor Arnold Kats – is ten years old. I made use of the trip to get to know new works by local composers and to prepare for a festival of Byelorussian art.
