The Strad interview with Albert Spalding (1907) here.

“All music that is good appeals to me, but, if I have any preference, it is for the German classical school. Bach and Beethoven are my ideals in music, which, I suppose, is the reason for my great admiration for Joachim.”

“Have you ever met him?”

“Yes, I spent some time with him at his home in Berlin and played for him, and I shall not easily forget his kindness and encouragement.”
