Ignatz Moscheles in Berlin - at the end of 1826

from Recent Music and Musicians, pages 89-90:

How delighted I was when he and his sister Fanny played as a pianoforte duet this new overture to the 'Midsummer Night's Dream,' and how grand I thought his sonata in E major! He played me also his great overture in C, with the leading subject for trumpets, and a small caprice which he called 'Absurdite.'
