Amy Fay in Weimar - May, 1873

from Music-Study in Germany: The Classic Memoir of the Romantic Era, page 219:

From time to time he [Liszt] will sit down and play himself where a passage does not suit him, and when he is in good spirits he makes little jests all the time. His playing was a complete revelation to me, and has given me an entirely new insight into music. You cannot conceive, without hearing him, how poetic he is, or the thousand nuances that he can throw into the simplest thing, and he is equally great on all sides. From the zephyr to the tempest, the whole scale is equally at his command.
