William Beatty-Kingston in Vienna - the 1800's
It was in that subfusk chamber [in the old Viennese Conservatoire in the Tuchlauben] that I first heard Anton Rubinstein play the Posthumous Sonata, and lent an enraptured ear to the strains of such Liedersaenger as Heleno Magnus and Gustav Walter. There I became acquainted, musically and personally, with Epstein and Brassin, Caroline Bettelheim and Augusta Kolar, Adolphe Brodsky and Dragomir Krancevich; with Josef Hellmesberger the elder.
