Maude V. White in St. James’s Hall, London - in the beginning of the 1880's
from Friends and Memories, page 257:
I still have ringing in my ears the exquisite way that under Richter’s direction the orchestra played the celebrated Introduction to the Third Act of the Meistersinger, surely one of the most heavenly pieces of music in existence. I know nothing that can beat it for noble dignity, for beautiful serenity.
