Ignatz Moscheles in London - 12 July, 1833

from Recent Music and Musicians, pages 195-196:

The music, to which I contributed my mite, was performed in the room of the masters of the Italian school; if inclined to migrate, one could enjoy a stroll in a room full of Dutch pictures, but as Malibran and Paganini were among the performers, every one was satisfied to stop and listen.
