Distressed by the Raymond affair, Philippa's practicing turned erratic, resulting in mediocre reviews for her performance at her fourth Town Hall concert. However, as her musical creativity was reborn, she worked on her African Rhapsody, and began performing a piano concerto entitled Nile Fantasy, commissioned five years earlier by the United Arab Republic government. Late in that year, Philippa flew to London for a few days and on her second night there she was invited to an informal cocktail party and there she met Dennis Gray Stoll, who was amazed with Philippa's performance. Dennis, who was in his fifties and educated at Cambridge, invited Philippa to have tea with him the following day. They saw each other a great deal during the next few weeks but she was still lacerated by the Raymond experience. They both referred to their relationship as a “partnership”.
