Eduard Hanslick Death

Legendary German-Bohemian music critic Eduard Hanslick died on this day in 1904.

Notoriously conservative, he was an outspoken opponent of the works of both Liszt and Wagner – and infamously, at its premiere, declared the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto put the audience “through hell” with music “which stinks to the ear”.
