You have your metaphors cross. My conversation with Mahler was in
English which I insisted he speak in order understand why he got fired
from the NY Philharmonic. Now I know. His accent was so strange that
they couldn't understand him.

Now anyone who wants to have a conversation with Shostakovich, be my
guest, but I don't talk to anyone who would write the b.c. part that he
wrote for the 2nd movement of the violin concerto. At last count, it
was 7,532 notes in 10 seconds and growing.
