Misc. Comments

Also performed on June 4 1912 in Croydon by William J Read, not in public but in part for the purpose of establishing British copyright- see Hyperion notes. Read also premiered works by Hurlstone (eg his piano quartet) and is noted in Coleridge-Taylor biographies as having rescued a work or two of the composer from the wastepaper-basket (one of which he passed on to Rutland Boughton and which eventually only got published in 1985).
