Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - 3 October, 1847

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 339:

After the Mendelssohns had dined with us, Felix and I amused ourselves at the piano with fugues and gigues by Bach; he then gave us an admirable imitation of the town musicians at Frankfort, whose Polkas he had been condemned to listen to hundreds of times.
