Edmund Rubbra in In a house in Kings Road, Reading - 1920
from The music of Edmund Rubbra, pages 8–9:
The room I worked in at the university had an upright piano, it is true, but as it and the room itself were used by other students as well, I didn’t get much privacy. However, there was a fairly mature student who didn’t belong to the university. She rejoiced in the name of Eurydice Draconi. She was a fine pianist and a pupil of George Woodhouse. She specialized in Scriabin, so I often retreated to where she lodged in Kings Road, and listened to her playing of his Fourth and Fifth Sonatas.
