Delius

from Delius: A Life in Letters 1862-1908, page 49:

When I first became acquainted with Grieg's music, it was not only that it made a deep impression on me, it was as if I was hearing something quite new, a curtain went up. So it was too when I heard you [Nina Grieg] sing. I had never heard anyone sing like you, it was also something quite new to me.
