(“Grisha! I always remember (and please you remember also!) that you were the initiator of this work (God, when was it?!), who (first ever!) brought me world-wide recognition on the XXIII Podium of Composers at UNESCO in Paris in 1971, and which strengthened our spiritual intimacy that was born coincidentally earlier, namely in 1951 in the dark, for you and for me, a time of the Stalinist-torture-chamber in Tver. Remember! Yours always, Kolya.”)
