Hermann Klein in London - June, 1887
from Thirty Years of Musical Life in London, page 175:
[Saint-Saens] gave some recitals, and accomplished his memorable feat of performing his own four pianoforte concertos at one sitting, which, as it took place on the anniversary of Waterloo, was generally supposed to be intended as a revenge for the defeat of the French in that immortal battle.
