Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - 1851

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 364:

Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, 'in the whirlwind of its passion,' carried away the audience; the performers grappled bravely with all the difficulties, and the victory was glorious; the 'Ode to Joy' found an echo in the hearts of all.
