Benjamin Britten - 27 January, 1935

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 245:

After they go listen to what seems a fine perf. by B.B.C. orch. under Oskar Fried (tho' without the suavity & rhythm of the Wien Phil) of Mahler's wonderful 9th Symphony. I could listen to this for hours. The end is really very moving.
