Nothing can be more ridiculous than to assert that Pachmann excels in Chopin because he is a Pole. [Pachmann was a Russian, not a Pole.] That he plays Chopin beautifully is true, but "nationality" has nothing to do with it; probably Chopin appeals to him especially—he likes it—he feels in sympathy with it—anything you like; but nationality—no. I have heard him in Schumann and in Weber, and both were equally well played. He is accurate to the point of fastidiousness, and his effects are all well thought out, although they sound so spontaneous. Technically there is no flaw in his performance, though I do not always agree with his "reading", even in Chopin. His originalities on the platform are part and parcel of his personality, and the little speeches he addresses to his audiences make his "Recitals" quite unique.

She has introduced several of my Pieces in Paris, where she now resides, having married Maître Labori, the well-known advocate, who made such a stir by his defence of Dreyfus.
Chapter 18. "PATENT" METHODS

Among Paderewski, . . . , Pachmann, . . . , Borwick, you will not find one who has been trained on any "new-fangled Method"; und damit "Punktum" [and that's the end of the matter]. [Pachmann was shortly afterwards to invent his own "Méthode".]
