from Musings & memories of a musician, page 17:
The greatest impression upon me then was made by that wonderful tenor Schnorr von Carolsfeld if I am not mistaken, the first to sing " Tristan " whom one night I had heard as "Raoul" in Meyerbeer's Huguenots. I was completely carried away by the nobility of his personality, his graceful acting, his beautiful singing, and gladly suffered the punishment of an hour's " arrest " in school the following day for being late.
