A programme of masterworks for oboe interlaced with connections – Lennox Berkeley first met Poulenc while a student of Nadia Boulanger in Paris, and the neo-baroque Petite Suite was composed at this time. Four years later, and five years before they met, Britten heard it, noting his enthusiasm in his diary. Britten and Berkeley subsequently had a close professional and personal relationship, and Britten became godfather to Lennox's son, Michael.
