anonymous in Royal Festival Hall - July, 1970

from Southbank Centre Archive:

"My first visit to RFH was in July or August 1970. I sat behind the orchestra and heard a performance of Bruckner's 7th. My lasting memory is of the cymbal player's steel nerves in leaving it to the last few seconds before standing up for his moment of glory in the slow movement. "
