Louis Spohr in Vienna - in the beginning of 1813

from Louis Spohr's Autobiography, page 187:

The new compositions of Beethoven pleased extremely, particularly the symphony in A-Major (the seventh); the wonderful second theme was encored; and made upon me also, a deep and lasting impression. The execution was a complete masterpiece, inspite of the uncertain and frequently laughable direction of Beethoven.
