Louis Spohr in Duchy of Brunswick - 1798

from Louis Spohr's Autobiography, page 12:

The presence of two foreign violinists who at this time visited Brunswick, produced also a favourable influence upon me. These were Seidler, and the boy Pixis. The former impressed me by his beautiful tone and his pure playing, the latter by his execution, which for his years, was extraordinary.
