Jack Brymer in Croydon - 1947

from The Limbo Years, page 51:

Dennis Brain... after which the next I heard of him was the startling sound of the wolves howling in Sibelius's 'Tapiola' during the first broadcast of Beecham's new Royal Philharmonic in 1947; but there's no doubt about it - when you hear a great player, you can't mistake it!
