William Beatty-Kingston in Vienna

from Music and manners; personal reminiscences and sketches of character, pages 5-6:

And yet, some of the finest performances to which it has been my good fortune to listen in the course of musical experiences extending over well nigh forty years took place in the sordid and unsavoury den [the old Viennese Conservatoire in the Tuchlauben] from which so many admirable artists have emerged, at different times during the present century, to reinforce the leading orchestras of Europe.
