Benjamin Britten in Royal College of Music - 5 June, 1931, 08:15 PM

from Diary of Benjamin Britten, June 5 1931b, page 75:

Go to R.C.M Chamber concert with Tumpty in evening, at 8.15. V. dull show. Sibeliu’s, Voces intimae, Quart. well played, but blurred out of all recognition by the hall. Ravel’s delicious Int. & Allegro, (Harp etc.). quite well played, made the concert worth going to.
