Footnotes

  • Sibelius's is a bold, if tremulous, pencil signature across the listings page of a programme (posted from Finland) for the Prom of 2 September 1948 with Basil Cameron conducting the LSO in Tapiola, the Violin Concerto and the Fifth Symphony. Kodaly has signed a Proms programme for the Háry János suite.
