1963:  John White

In five movements, accompanied by a large chamber group of 19 players. The performance (18/10/63) attracted one of the composer’s favourite reviews:-
"Given a sound thrashing by Nadia Boulanger, Litolff might have written this work – and similarly chastened, Mr White would have done better. But for an RCM professor to publicise this pot-pourri of feeble tunes, fidgety harmonies and rambling, purposeless key-changes, even if unprecedented, will never do.”
(Edmund Tracey – Times Higher Educational Supplement, 25/10/63)
