Ignatz Moscheles in London - 17 April, 1837

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 238:

You can imagine my excitement before and during the concert on the 17th of April [...] all the newspapers are fairly in raptures with this colossal music, and unanimously insist on its remaining a fixture in the 'Repertoire,' and being performed, on a grander scale, either in Exeter Hall or at the Birmingham Festival.
