Robert Schumann in Holland - at the end of 1853
from Letters of composers : an anthology, 1603-1945 / compiled and edited by Gertrude Norman and Miriam Lubell Shrifte., page 163:
How I wish I could listen to your beautiful playing again! Was it all a dream - our tour in Holland last winter, your brilliant reception everywhere, particularly at Rotterdam, and the torches carried in our honour. You played the E-flat Concerto, Beethoven’s sonatas in C major and F minor, Chopin’s studies, Mendelssohn’s Songs without Words, and my new Konzertstück in D in such glorious fashion.
