Benjamin Britten in Lowestoft - 14 February, 1935

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 249:

Early dinner, after which listen to two masterpieces worthily performed. From Vienna, Mahler's adorable 4th Symphony - the lovely Vien. Symph. under Zemlinsky, with Annie Michaldey, as a lovely soloist A truly sensitive show. Then from Regional - F.B's last trio well played by the Grinke - full of great stuff, with impeccable workmanship. Hats off - gentlemen, even if they have to be forcibly removed! Now for war!!
