Thomas Ryan in Sydney - the 1880's
from Recollections of an old musician, pages 212, 213:
The Quintette Club at that time was composed of the following artists: First violin, Isidor Schnitzler; second violin, August Thiele; flute and viola, William Schade; clarinet and viola, Thomas Ryan; violoncello, Fritz Giese; Miss Miller, soprano.
After a few days’ rest and a chance to get our fingers into working order, we gave a soirie, by invitation, in Pahling’s piano ware- rooms, to newspaper and music people. The papers declared that nothing so thoroughly artistic as our Club had hitherto visited their colony. It was a good send-off.
