Mikhail Glinka in Paris - 1845
from Letters of composers : an anthology, 1603-1945 / compiled and edited by Gertrude Norman and Miriam Lubell Shrifte., page 134:
I have given Heidenreich my opinion on the Conservatoire concerts. He must have told you about it. I want to add that I have heard their orchestra in the “Pastoral” Symphony. It was very good – too good, I think. They bring out each detail with so much attention and such refinement of nuance that the total effect suffers.
