Hermann Klein in Birmingham - October, 1894

from Thirty Years of Musical Life in London, 1870-1900, page 343:

I had spoken to Oudin at the Birmingham Festival (October, 1894), and remarked upon his thin, careworn aspect. Yet how beautifully he had sung the music of Br. Marianus in the  third part of Schumann's “Faust"! It was all he had had to do at the festival; but it was enough, he had made his mark. Then he went home, and in a month's time was no more.
