Benjamin Britten - 5 January, 1935
After dinner, wireless - including a very interesting 'Conversation in a train', a part of a popular 'Prom' Tschaikovsky Pft. concerto & Berlioz Faust pieces* (lovely things) played in a dreadfully slap-dash, off-hand way - & of course received with rapturous applause.
