A review of this concert, written by William Saunders, was published in the London Musical Standard on 26 January 1918
This review confirms that Tovey directed the Mozart concerto from the keyboard, "apart from the somewhat distracting antics of the pianist-conductor, its success was such as to justify a general adoption of this duality of function whenever a competent conductor-executant can be found."
