Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - 1851

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 364:

I admire his light-fingered bravura, his weird like effects and 'verve;' his execution, although stormy and restless, is always piquant - he at least does not, like so many others, write sickly Italian music, half thunder, half sentiment.
