Ignatz Moscheles in London - 28 May, 1832

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 180:

Felix dined with us, and in the evening we went together to the Philharmonic Concert: he won a genuine triumph by the performance of his new 'G minor Concerto'. Invention, form, instrumentation, and playing: everything gave me perfect satisfaction. The piece sparkles with genius.
