Notes: 

According to the review in "The Scotsman," 16 March, 1928, this concert had been scheduled to feature Madame Adila Fachiri in a pereformance of the Brahms violin concerto.  "Ample compensation for any disappointment, however, was provided in the delightful renderings of Beethoven's G major piano concero and of Mozart's concerto in E flat for horn and orchestra..."  In the performance of the Beethoven, for which Professor Tovey was the soloist, the orchestra was directed by Miss Mary Grierson.
