Ignatz Moscheles in York - 4 February, 1833

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 187:

We had but one solo-singer, a few glees, some miserable overtures, in which the flute was the sole support of the harmonies. O, misery! Anyone less thick skinned than I am, would have died straight off, but I could listen without as much as a fainting fit.
