Ignatz Moscheles in Gewandhaus - at the end of 1846

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 327:

In the evening [I] had the great delight of hearing a Gewandhaus Concert. Mendelssohn's conducting was as admirable as ever, the band obeyed his slightest hint. Madame Schumann played Beethoven's 'B major Concerto' to great perfection; I felt this to be a real atmosphere of art.
