Friedrich Kalkbrenner et al. in London - 1821

from Recent Music and Musicians, pages 35-36:

He took me to hear the young people who study with Logier, but I could not share his admiration of this newly invented system, although I think Logier and his wife a clever and artistic couple. Would I have any one follow this system? I hardly think so. The mind should work more intensely than the fingers, and how can there be a question of mind when two pupils play the same piece at the same time?
