Misc. Comments

  • Sir Adrian Boult subsequently secured permission from Sibelius, who wrote: “I heard Dr Ralph Vaughan Williams’ new Symphony in Stockholm under the excellent leadership of Malcolm Sargent… This Symphony is a marvellous work… the dedication made me feel proud and grateful… I wonder if Dr Williams has any idea of the pleasure he has given me?” — Quoted in Music and Friends, pp. 143–44
