At seventeen, a credit to his masters, von Bulow and Liszt, he was giving his first important piano recitals in Berlin and Vienna, and a year later in London. He is recognised as one of the greatest living interpreters of the piano music of Beethoven ; but he is a fine player of the piano works of many other classical composers.

Some aspects of the work of the Staff Pilot, illustrated in commentaries from air and ground by Wynford Vaughan Thomas and Stewart MacPherson , in an outside broadcast from a Flying Training Command Station
The Staff Pilot has an important job of work to do. He plays a large part in the training of all classes of air crew, that is navigators, bomb aimers, air gunners, etc. The work is exacting and often monotonous. Bad weather does not necessarily mean a rest. At regular intervals he spends a period on night flying, which, in good weather, is1 more intensive than the ,night flying of the operation pilots.
