Hermann Klein - May, 1890

from Thirty Years of Musical Life in London, 1870-1900, page 298:

For my own part, I confess that I did not at first care to commit myself to a definite judgment. Yet I had found  so much to admire, so much to marvel at, so much  that was individual and supremely masterful in Paderewski's playing that I determined not to miss a single recital of the three still to come. The second drew a better audience, though nothing  approaching a crowd; and this time the new pian-  ist included Bach, Beethoven, and Schubert in his  scheme, together with more Chopin and Paderewski. The “barometer'' began to rise.
