Wilhelm Ganz in Harley Street - 1886

from Memories of a Musician: Reminiscences of Seventy years of Musical Life, page 103:

At my concert in 1886, given at my residence in Harley Street, Isidore de Lara, who was then the rage, sang one of his own popular compositions. He was the first singer to make a special feature of sitting down to the piano and accompanying himself at concerts. He used to gaze round the room when singing, and wear a very intense expression, which charmed his fair hearers.
