Ignatz Moscheles in Germany - 1823

from Recent Music and Musicians, pages 56-57:

At this first hearing of 'Olympia' I found much that was grand and indicative of genius, without concealing from myself the weakness of many passages. Zelter, who delighted in opposing every modern 'eccentricity', as he called most of the innovations, declared that he could hear plenty of such noisy music outside the opera-house without going into it.
