I’ve spoken about Evlyn Howard-Jones and the piano.  He was a friend of John Ireland, Bax, Goossens, and that school of music, as well as Cyril Scott.  On the other hand, Holst was a friend of Vaughan Williams, and the two schools of thought were much opposed to each other.  Howard-Jones said rather nasty things about Vaughan Williams’s school, and the other side said equally nasty things (although not quite so much) about the school that Howard-Jones championed.  But Holst didn’t know much about what was being produced by these other composers, so that, very often, when I had little to show him he would say, “would you play me some piano music” of whoever it might be – Delius, Bax, or Ireland – and he would listen to it very silently and say nothing at the end, so I wasn’t aware of whether he liked it or not.  But he was interested in hearing it anyway.
