Benjamin Britten in Lowestoft - 2 June, 1934

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 213:

After dinner listen to wireless - including a bit of 9th Symphony from Hilversum - conductor luckily unamed - very bad, tempi ridiculous, grosely over-scored (re-scored) & ill-balanced.
