Ignatz Moscheles in London - between 1830 and 1831

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 169:

The crowd in the Opera House was wild with excitement. He had to play nearly everything twice over, and was not only greeted with vehement clapping of hands, but every lady leaned forward out of her box to wave her handkerchief at him; people in the pit stood up on the benches, shouting 'Hurrah ! Bravo !' Neither Sontag nor Pasta made such an impression here, much less any other artist.
