Benjamin Britten in Lowestoft - 16 January, 1935, at night
Dreadful journey back - running out of water, in the thick fog. However a good dinner, and the Mahler gram. records (Kindertodtenlieder) restores my faith in life.
When F.B. conducts the chief advantage is to be able to listen to the music without bothering about the interpretation. The shows are always 'just right'.
