Georg Henschel in Wrocław - 1869

from Musings & memories of a musician, page 34:

The concert in the evening was a tremendous success. Rubinstein received a perfect ovation at the end of his D Minor Concerto, and when, that night, I was lying awake in bed and dreaming for a long time before finding sleep, I came to the conclusion that there was not a bad name in the world I should mind being called as long as I could play as well and be as famous as Rubinstein.
