Benjamin Britten in London - 1 October, 1932

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 116:

Listen to Last "Prom" on wireless after dinner. Gigantic enthusiasm for Wood. Chief features of a rowdy programme - Dennis Noble's wonderful singing of Largo al factotum (Rossini) & the Ravel Bolero.
