Benjamin Britten in Farfield - 9 May, 1929

from Diary of Benjamin Britten, May 9 1929, page 21:

Remake our studies in the morning and unpack. Chapel at 10.30. Play ten┬Čnis with Williamson, Hinde II, & Roberts, who (the last 2 are pretty hope┬Čless) at 4.15-5.15. Have a slight practise at piano, and a little gramophone (ist mov.s. of Brahm's 4th symph. & Piano quintet, & last of Mozart Jupiter). Feel pretty miserable, especially as there is no news from home.
