On this day in 1932 Ireland was north of the border, giving a recital in the Stevenson Hall, Glasgow. The concert opened with the Phantasie Trio, Ireland joined by Betty Spence (violin) and Luigi Gasparini (cello) (he a regular soloist in Glasgow). The concert also included sonatas for both of those instruments: the Cello Sonata and the Second Violin Sonata. Other items in the programme were ‘The island spell’ and a number of songs featuring Scottish baritone James Reid. Ireland himself ‘was warmly applauded for his renderings at the piano’ (Scotsman, 13 April 1932, p.9).
