Halle in Paris - 1848

from Life and letters of Sir Charles Hallé; being an autobiography (1819-1860), page 71:

Mendelssohn's playing was not exactly that of a ' virtuoso,' not to be compared with that of Liszt or Thalberg (he himself called it ' en gros spielen '), but it was remarkably perfect, and one felt the great musician, the great composer, in every bar he played.
