Notes & Reviews:

Although now forgotten, Felix Otto Dessoff shared much in common, in musicality and personality, with Brahms. As a conductor, he premiered Brahms' Symphony No. 1 and remained a close friend. After his death, Brahms wrote to Clara Schumann, "With Dessoff gone, you have indeed suffered a significant loss. He was a wonderful, lively, sensitive person, a finely trained musician."
