Ignatz Moscheles in Berlin - at the end of 1824

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 65:

Felix had to show me a Concerto in C minor, a double Concerto, and several motets; and all so full of genius, and at the same time so correct and thorough! His elder sister Fanny, also extraordinarily gifted, played by heart, and with admirable precision. Fugues and Passacailles by Bach. I think one may well call her a thorough 'Mus. Doc.'
