In the matter of technique Joséffy is one of the world's wonders... The last time I met him was in poor Johann von Herbeck's sky-parlour, where he kept a large party of musical critics and executants up till daybreak by a very remarkable prodigality of his répertoire's apparently inexhaustible resources. At the conclusion of this entertainment, his hearers being fairly worn out with the high tension at which he had kept their nerves for several hours, nothing would satisfy him but that I should play him a match of " Kegel " billiards at a café of his predilection, which enjoyed the distinction of being permitted to keep open all night long, and — like the Maison Dorée of old — had not been closed to its customers for many a year.
