Ignatz Moscheles in Paris - in the middle of 1860

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 399:

Herz has given my E flat Concerto to the pupils to study, but alas! in what a broken, fragmentary fashion. Auber, the director, does not allow more than four or five minutes to each pupil for his playing at the 'Concours'; eight bars, therefore, are taken from the 'tutti' and the half of the first solo jumbled together with the second half of the third. How is it possible to test by such a process the capabilities of the performer?
