Amy Fay in Weimar - May, 1873
from Music-Study in Germany: The Classic Memoir of the Romantic Era, page 211:
As I entered Liszt's salon, Urspruch was performing Schumann's Symphonic Studies—an immense composition, and one that it took at least half an hour to get through. He played so splendidly that my heart sank down into the very depths. I thought I should never get on there! Liszt came forward and greeted me in a very friendly manner as I entered.
