Jack Brymer in Chicago - 1950

from The Beecham Years, page 95:

There was the night in Chicago when Dennis Brain had just played one of the Mozart Horn Concertos on his ancient French Roaux instrument, dented, covered in patches of solder, but with a sound I never heard from any other horn, even when played by Dennis.
