William Beatty-Kingston in Vienna - 15 February, 1867

from Music and manners; personal reminiscences and sketches of character, pages 6-7:

I do not hope to hear it [Mozart’s sextet] ever rendered again as it was given on the 15th February, 1867, in the Diana Saal, by five of the most eminent soloists then living (including Kapellmeister Hellmesberger himself, who literally played " second fiddle " to his talented child), under the leading of handsome little Pepi.
