Ignatz Moscheles in Weimar - November, 1852

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 371:

my expectations were not at a high pitch but he certainly has surpassed them. A great deal is no doubt over eccentric and disconnected, but there is much that is grandly conceived and carried out. In the 'Faust,' his introduction of the Ràkoczy March is electrifying; this was repeated, as well as the soldier's song, and the waltz.
