I was at that concert! my mother was Jean Le Fevre, for many years a member of the Philharmonia 2nd Violin section. It was such a thrill to hear David Oistrakh on his first visit to the UK.

I also recognise Jean Le Fevre because she was my first and only teacher. Hi Sally! I still love playing the violin thanks to her wonderful spirit which helped me learned to play.
