Benjamin Britten in Lowestoft - 18 January, 1934

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 196:

Listen to F.B. conudcting B.B.C. orch. in a programme of light music - delightfully done. William Tell, ov.; Chant sans paroles; Funeral March of a Marionette was just superb; Sylvia Ballet; Barcorolle etc. from Tales of Haffman; and Marche - Père la Victoire to finish.* The whole programme was just right.
