Ignatz Moscheles in London - 1841
from Recent Music and Musicians, page 280:
Strangely enough, the 'Melusine' was coldly received, the music was not understood, and failed to kindle any enthusiasm, perhaps for the want of a brilliant finale. Suffice it to say that the jealous and thick-headed are already glad to talk about failure, while we are up in arms against them.
