Status: Needs Review

Do you know this Dvorak stuff, darling? I'm sure you
must do. I told you before that the lettle quartette had played
some of his and that I had enjoyed it very much. Dvorak was
a Czech- & so is Singer - & so the result was magnificent.
It is most lovely music, - so alive & exciting & beautiful
& tuneful - & I suppose very easy to understand. They
played an encore - & Singer nearly lost all his clothes.
The other concert, I enjoyed very much too, though
nowhere near no much. Firstly - "Anderson Overture" Cherubini's which
I rather forget now. and then "Harold in Italy" by Berlioz
which I liked, really, though not wildly. And then Brahms
Symphony No 1 in C. minor, op 68 (if you know what I
mean!) which was lovely. The conductor was a
man called Crawford McNair who conducts the
Palestine Radio Orchestra -he was somewhat wooden
& automatic. And there was a soloist, a man
called Ödön Pártos, who played a viola very nicely - &
dropped his bow once. The next concert is in May,
& of course, I shall go. They are the only things I
look forward to nowadays. Except that I see a film
has arrived, with Bette Davis and Charles Boyer, which
should be very good.

I have got myself a little bit further organised today, &
my batman has now produced a good solid table, & a
cover of sort of billiard table cloth, but in a pleasant
warm beige colour. I have this in my bedroom, of
course- & so now I can be out of the office,
