Hermann Klein - 1886

from Thirty Years of Musical Life in London, 1870-1900, pages 189-90:

By the way, Malten and Gudehus were again in London in 1886, when they sang at the Richter Concerts in long excerpts from “Tristan” and “Siegfried”, supported by Pauline and Georg Henschel. I never cared particularly for the tenor— his voice was always hard and metallic; but Malten's noble organ was never in grander condition, and she sang with a degree of dramatic intensity and emotional warmth that was absolutely thrilling.
