Footnotes

  • If Ernest Newman's weekly column in the Sunday Times is to be believed, the festival was not a great success: "Some eager and imaginative journalists...waxed very wroth over the 'Ravel Festival' fiasco of last Thursday. Why was Queen's Hall more than half empty? they asked...The truth is that modern French music as a whole has failed, in spite of the most energetic propaganda, to win its way into the heart of the ordinary British music-lover".
