Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - between 1856 and 1860
from Recent Music and Musicians, page 393:
Behr gave for his benefit the 'Tannhauser,' under Liszt's direction, some of the Weimar company assisting. My chief objection to the innovators is that they aspire to go beyond Beethoven, and altogether dethrone Mozart and Haydn, hitherto the acknowledged keystones to the foundation of music.
