from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 146:

In the Chamber Concert (Mozart G maj. & Faure - International Str. Q.) at 9.5.* Goossens & Mangeot, Bray, & Shineborne boradcast my Phant. Ob. Quart. Mum Pop, Mr. & Mrs. Brosa come to listen. Goossens does his part splendidly. The rest - altho' they are intelligent players, aren't really first class instrumentalists.
