Mrs. Bridge et al. in London - 16 February, 1933

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

I go to Audry Chapman Orch at Clerkenwell with Bridges after an early dinner. F.B. conducts as usual, & the strings of the orch. are for amateurs marvellous - quite the best of all in town. Mozart - Figaro ov. & Jupiter. Brahms-Haydn variations, Schumann Pft. conc. (Irene Scharrer intensions v. fine but execution not so good).
