Ignatz Moscheles in Paris - in the middle of 1860

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 401:

When I next came, Rossini, yielding to my request, but not without modestly expressing diffidence in his own powers, played an Andante in B flat, beginning somewhat in this style [...] in which, after the first eight bars, the following interesting modulation was introduced [...] The piece is what we Germans would call tame.
