Benjamin Britten in Royal Academy of Music - 7 December, 1933

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 156:

Go to R.A.M to a New Music Society concert. Where the Grinke Trio (G. (Vl), Florence Hooton (Vlc) & Dorothy Manley (Pft)) play F.B.'s last Trio magnificently.* It is a thrilling work, & I enjoyed & wondered at it enormously. The rest of the programme (except for an interesting Sonatina of Casella) was negligible.**
