Ignatz Moscheles in Venice - in the middle of 1853

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 377:

Tbe wanderins: musicians, who play in the Piazza of St. Marc or in eating houses, for small coin payment, are more deafening than animating; the tone, however, of both men and women violinists has often something piquant about it, reminding one of the style of Paganini, by which I mean that the Leipzig Schneckenberg resembles Mont Blanc.
