Re: [NABOKOV-L] [ Sighting] Nab okov and Chostakóvitch
Dear Alexey,

Thank you for the necessary clarification. I was trying, unsuccesfully, to place the event in connection to Vladimir Nabokov (this is why my short commentary emphasized the clumsy "would haves "). The episode indicates VN's musician cousin, Nicolas Nabokov, and his known collaboration with the World Peace conferences and initiatives in the arts.

Dear Jansy,

This story is actually about VN's cousin, the composer Nicolas Nabokov (1903-78), and is recounted by him in his memoir Bagazh (1975).
