William Beatty-Kingston in Bucharest - between 1865 and 1875
from Music and manners; personal reminiscences and sketches of character, pages 128-129:
So, indeed, were they all; and I shall never forget the rapture of attention and glow of excitement with which they listened to some sketchy souvenirs of Wagner, Berlioz, and Liszt, which I played to them on a dreadful old grand piano one day, when I had bidden them to my hotel for the entertainment of a few friends [in Burcharest]. It was a treat to observe their intense appreciation of harmonic methods and treatments absolutely new to them, and to listen to their intelligent attempts to fish out the novelties on their own instruments afterwards.
