Benjamin Britten in Lowestoft - 19 January, 1934

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, pages 196-197:

Listne to Hindemith's last String trio* after dinner - (played by Hindemeth etc.) - I can't make very much of it but judging by first hearing, the fast movements have a pleaseing vitality which is missing in the slower ones.
