Last night I went again to hear Anderszewski in a second concert designed to get people to listen to the extraordinary music of Szymanowski. Again, a superb evening. This time this strange music was linked to Schumann's Fairytale Pictures for Viola and Piano as well as to Bartok.

The technical difficulties evaporate in the hands of such an imaginative player. We were all drunk, wistful, mourning and childlike together.
