Amy Fay in Weimar - August, 1873

from Music-Study in Germany: The Classic Memoir of the Romantic Era, pages 248-249:

Yesterday he [Liszt] played us a study of Paganini's, arranged by himself, and also his Campanella. I longed for M., as she is so fond of the Campanella. Liszt gave it with a velvety softness, clearness, brilliancy and pearliness of touch that was inimitable. And oh, his grace! Nobody can compare with him! Everybody else sounds heavy beside him!
