Ignatz Moscheles in Weimar - November, 1852

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 372:

I was delighted by the flow of melody, and the occasionally very discreet instrumentation; a great deal, however, I find obscure, and the finale, the 'Carnival at Rome,' completely unintelligible. The audience generally was in favor of the music, although there was nothing encored.
