Ignatz Moscheles in Switzerland - in the middle of 1852

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 370:

We arrived late in the evening at Tetschen, hungry and tired to death, and ordered supper in our room; but oh, misery! the sound of a piano suddenly breaks upon us! Just imagine, only a thin door between me and Weber's 'Invitation a la Valse,' strummed by an unpracticed hand, and drawled out (to quote Mendelssohn) as 'a slow Presto.'
