Ignatz Moscheles in London - in the middle of 1833

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 196:

I swallowed my dinner hastily, so as not to miss a note of this masterpiece, but, after listening with close attention for some time, I was mortified at finding that the small amount of vigor left to me after the rough-and-tumble of the season, was not enough to enable me to take in and digest such a colossal work.
