Benjamin Britten in Lowestoft - 12 February, 1933

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 131:

Listen to Maestersinger Ov. after supper - Adrian Boult. This perf, like the Eroica, an absolute disgrace. Of course the notes were correctly played, & more or less together but - tempo, phrasing dynamics, shape, etc. etc!!!
