Benjamin Britten in London - 29 September, 1933

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 150:

Listen to [Beethoven] Choral Fantasia & 9th from prom, after dinner. Even Wood's eccentricities, and the rather roughness of performance couldn't hide the unapproachable genius & inspiration of the whole of the latter.
