Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - 1851

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 365:

We have also heard at the theatre Mendelssohn's operetta, 'The Son and Stranger.' Although the idyllic character charmed the connoisseurs and artists, a few hisses were mingled with the applause when the piece was ended; these were like the occasional 'à bas' which are heard among the public cheers for a crowned head.
