Benjamin Britten in Lowestoft - 13 February, 1935

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 248:

Listen to 'Scrap-book for 1921' in evening - very entertaining - having tried in vain to get Bruckner's 4th from Leipzig. Get most of Dvorak's Adorable 5th later from from Huizen.*
