Virginia Woolf in London - 21 April, 1918

from The diary of Virginia Woolf. Vol.1, 1915-1919, page 142:

The weather goes on with its wind & rain & occasional snow.  I went to a concert at the Palladium this afternoon; but on the whole I regretted it.  A man called Julian Clifford played Mozart as if it were a Dream Waltz, slowly & sentimentally & with a kind of lugubrious stickiness which spoilt my pleasure in the G.minor.
