Beatrice Harrison in England - 1924

from The Cello and the Nightingales- The autobiography of Beatrice Harrison, pages 135-136:

However, I began to work at it [Kodály’s Solo Cello Sonata] and, my goodness gracious, how difficult it was at first to get used to the strange tonality, putting the C and G strings down a semi-tone, and playing in the key of B minor.
