William Beatty-Kingston - the 1840's
from Music and manners; personal reminiscences and sketches of character, page 194:
My earliest remembrances of remarkable pianoforte- playing are connected with Madame Dulcken, Cipriani Potter, Mendelssohn, Thalberg, W. H. Holmes, Stemdale Bennett, Lindsay Sloper and Alexander Dreyschock...All the artists above-mentioned were, from my point of view, distractingly, overwhelmingly, crushingly excellent.
