William Beatty-Kingston in Vienna - the 1800's

from Music and manners; personal reminiscences and sketches of character, page 9:

On another scarcely less interesting occasion, a few weeks later, at a Carnavalesque Liedertafel of the Viennese Choral Society, I heard him [Pepi Hellmesberger] lead Mozart's comic sextett (stringed quartett and two horns) with admirable humour, archness, and petulance.
