Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - December, 1852

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 372:

One plays in a style cold and clear as a bright December night, and just as frosty; another, with his crashing chords, shakes, and arpeggios, is really too merciless on my unfortunate Erard, which is not only beaten out of tune, but somehow or other has been severely injured.
