Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - in the beginning of 1848

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 348:

I have been to the theatre to hear a new opera, which was a complete failure, the music so bad and commonplace that it actually disturbed me in a nap. David, the picture of misery, frequently looked up to me from the orchestra for a sympathetic glance. I pitied him.
