An Herrn Seuffert: "You may remember that before I left Vienna last winter, it was decided that I should write to you this month on the subject of my playing at one of the Rosé concerts next season.

Die in London geborene Künstlerin erfuhr ihre erste musikalische Ausbildung durch ihren Vater und studierte anschließend bei Clara Schumann, die sie Brahms vorstellte. "Becoming his pupil, she was thereafter noted for her authoritative performances of his music. Her Life of Johannes Brahms (2 vols., London, 1905, 2/1948) is well-researched" (Grove Music online).
