Amy Fay in Berlin - January, 1870
From time to time [in his lessons] Tausig would…play himself, and he is indeed a perfect wonder! If, as they say, Liszt's trill is "like the warble of a bird," his is as much so. It is not surprising that he is so celebrated, and I long to hear him in concert, where he will do full justice to his powers. He thrills you to the very marrow of your bones…His playing is spoken of as sans pareil.
