Hubert Parry - early 20th Century

from Notes for Vaughan Williams's Talk on Parry and Stanford, 1957, page 95:

He [Parry] would take the trouble to listen to Schoenberg, even in his old age. Naturally he did not like him, but he was willing to test him; though, after hearing the Five Orchestral Pieces he is reported to have said 'I can stand this fellow when he is loud, it is when he is soft he is so obscene.'
