[Beatty-Kingston quoting Richard Wagner]

"At Weimar once, during the very day upon which I became certain that my personal safety was endangered " (he was compelled to quit Germany, being under prosecution for political offences), "I saw Liszt conducting a rehearsal of my opera Tannhäuser and was wonder-stricken in recognising in him my second self. What I had felt in composing that music, he felt in performing it; what I wanted to express when I wrote it down, he actually expressed in giving it sound."
