Hermann Klein in St James's Hall - 10 June, 1895

from Thirty Years of Musical Life in London, 1870-1900, page 417:

The predominant position of Paderewski had long since been assured; now, however, came Moritz Rosenthal and Eugen d'Albert, seeking a London endorsement of the reputations they had already won on the Continent and in America. In each case the general verdict was emphatically ratified. Moritz Rosenthal's debut at the Richter concerts (June 10, 1895), when he played the Liszt concerto in E flat, created a genuine sensation; and his subsequent recitals confirmed the opinion that he possessed the most phenomenal technique of any living pianist.
