Dame Ethel Mary Smyth in Gewandhaus - October, 1878
from Impressions That Remained Memoirs, pages 286-287:
This has been a great week on account of the Frau Schumann festival. It went off most gloriously. The woman surely never played as she did last Wednesday at the rehearsal, and above all last Thursday, in the concert. Thanks to the death of the Concertmeister's wife's uncle, I got a ticket just under the piano.
She played too exquisitely, such fire and pathos, and looked so beautiful at the same time in dark red velvet with a long satin train.
