Mengelberg successfully flattered his audience with that bonmot - an audience that maybe still remembered Brahms' kindly devastating "You're nice people, but bad musicians"  Grin
Didn't know this one, not caring much for Brahms myself  Grin - nor for the German Romantics and later Romantics in general, for that matter.
I do know they considered Britain 'das Land ohne Musik' - where again I myself know no richer musical environment than the British musical world. Which is to say: beauty is in the ear of the beholder.  Wink

… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.  RVW, 1948
