Ignatz Moscheles in Vienna - 8 March, 1814

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 8:

Thoroughly convinced of his [Meyerbeer's] masterly playing, I was still curious to see what effect it would have on a mixed audience, and remarked that even those passages which possibly were not understood, caused great astonishment - chiefly on account of the mastery shown in overcoming great difficulties.
