Chopin in Prague - August, 1829

from Selected Correspondance of Fryderyck Chopin, page 29:

Pixis [...] invited me to drop in after lunch as he had asked Klengel to come at that time. We actually met on Pixis's stairs and I listened to him playing his fugues for two hours. I did not play myself although they asked me to. He plays quite nicely but (entre nous) it might be better.
