Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - September, 1853
from Recent Music and Musicians, page 381:
Our friend F., with his bumptious ways, is particularly offensive to me; he, like so many others, comes to me for advice, advice meaning praise. How infinitely superior to such professionals are amateurs of the stamp of Frau B.! Her performance of my 'Concert Pathétique' was so good, that I took to playing the piece again myself.
