Amy Fay in Weimar - July, 1873

from Music-Study in Germany: The Classic Memoir of the Romantic Era, page 238:

One day when Mr. Orth was playing the Allegro of the Sonata Op. 110, Liszt insisted upon having it done in a particular way, and made him go back and repeat it over and over again. One line of it is particularly hard. Liszt made every one in the class sit down and try it. Most of them failed, which amused him.
