Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - between 1850 and 1851

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 360:

The fragments of the opera, 'Lorelei,' in which Mendelssohn shows clearly unmistakable power as a dramatic composer, seemed to intensify our sorrow at his premature death. The passionate strains allotted to 'Lorelei' were superbly rendered by Frau Frege. What a pity that so gifted an artiste should be withheld from the public!
