Ignatz Moscheles in London - 1845

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 313:

I heard Félicien David's 'D'sert,' with its piquant original melodies and harmonies illustrative of Oriental life. The 'March of the Caravans,' with its Clarinet Obligato, and the descriptive scene with the sunrise pleased me, but on the whole the subject is treated in the light Frenchified manner.
