Reverting for a moment to his [Tausig] characteristics as a performer, I may add that he produced a broader tone than any other Berlin pianist of his day — that his lightness of touch in rendering the fanciful and elaborate ornamentations of Chopin and Liszt, as simply exquisite, and that he was especially remarkable for the verve and ton with which he executed those amazing tours de force invented by himself as well as by the mighty Hungarian ecclesiastic, which are the terror of ninety-nine expert pianists in every hundred. No one who ever listened to his feats in this direction will bo likely to forget what a wealth of sound and complexity of combinations his deft fingers extracted from the key-board. In him were combined the more salient excellences of the old and new schools of pianism.
