Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - between 1856 and 1860

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 397:

Liszt's genius seemed to culminate when he played my old 'Variations,' and finally, my 'Sonate Mélancholique.' I wish I could equally admire his style of composition, but there stands the barrier to a perfect artistic intimacy.
