Chopin in Warsaw - September, 1829

from Selected Correspondance of Fryderyck Chopin, pages 33-34:

Klengel is, of all my pianistic acquaintances, the one who pleases me most. I met him at Pixis's in Prague. He played me his fugues one might say that they form a sequel to Bach's: there are forty-eight of them, and as many canons. The difference between him and Czerny is obvious.
