Sylvia Townsend Warner - 26 January, 1963

from The diaries of Sylvia Townsend Warner, page 283:

Listening to Schubert 9th, and the first sfz [sforzando] in the second movement I was suddenly back at 113, with Purefoy beside me at the old Broadwood, and as we brought off a remarkably unanimous and precise sfz, she muttered 'That'll wake 'em!'
