Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - at the end of 1853

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 382:

I have heard a good deal of Berlioz, and give him my closest attention. My opinion of his music remains unshaken, I acknowledge his merit, but cannot always understand him - or is such music as the 'Witches' Sabbath,' not meant to be understood ?
