Jelly played with many prominent, or promising, pianists. At the Leith Hill Festival of 1924 there was Arnold Goldsbrough, still a master at Westminster but already organist at St Annes, Soho, who had studied the double-bass under Claude Hobday, Ethel’s brother-in-law. Apart from partner players, Jelly had varied pianists as accompanists other than Ethel Hobday. In London and outside the list contains George Reeves, Ivor Newton, Frederick Stone, Reginald Paul, John Wills. Often there were local ones. As a pianist Myra Hess had a grand authority, an impressive and solid scholarship and a fine taste controlling hands superbly equipped. She was later to be held the finest woman exponent of Beethoven and among the best pianists of the world. Each woman continued her separate career and came together now and then. Many programmes survive, but London concert halls by no means always date their notices fully, and it is hard to see any pattern.
