Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - between 1856 and 1860

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 392:

We heard Beethoven's 'Men of Prometheus,' a work that certainly reminds one of his earliest time, but is redolent of the noble spirit of the master; then Schumann's overture to 'Hermann and Dorothea,' breathing poetry throughout.
