Concerts: A young and unknown George Solti conducting Schubert's 9th Symphony (circa 1955?). A Beethoven cycle by Boult and the LPO (1955) - Boult introduced a young pianist called Peter Katin. Many concerts conducted by Royalton Kisch!! He seems to have been eradicated from history! Sibelius 90th Birthday Concert - RPO Beecham Dec. 8th 1955. Beecham having fun with press photographers. Thomas Jenson - Nielson's 5th and Sibelius 6th, can't remember orchestra. (1958-9) 1st British performance of Robert Simpson 1st Symph and a Sym by Stanley Bate. Tickets Red stripes for left hand stairs, and green for right. Beautiful appearance of organ. Why is it so often covered up (concealed) including in photos and on the picture with this card? When I 1st saw the auditorium I was bowled over, and have continued to be so ever since!! Catering was better in the 50s than it is now.
