Louis Spohr in Hamburg - 15 November, 1810

from Louis Spohr's Autobiography, pages 153-154:

Nevertheless, on the evening of the representation, it was not without fresh anxiety that I took my place at my desk, for it had come to my ears that, Clasing’s friends would evince an inimical feeling towards me in revenge for the failure of his opera. But when the music had begun, I thought of that alone, and forgot every thing else around me.
