Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - in the middle of 1835

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 212:

I visited the Wiecks, and Clara played to me a good deal; among other things a manuscript sonata by Schumann - very labored, difficult, and somewhat intricate, although interesting music. Her playing was admirable, and void of all affectation.
