Alexander Mackenzie in Edinburgh - 1877

from A Musician's Narrative , pages 91-92:

The same scrupulous care was given to Cherubini's Ali Baba, Auber's Overtures, or expended upon the preparation of the solo part of Moscheles' Fantasie on Scotch Airs for piano and orchestra (for a single performance), as to Brahms' Symphony No. 1–which I heard for the first time under Bülow in 1977.
