Ignatz Moscheles in London - 24 May, 1832

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 180:

Second representation of 'Fidelio', if possible, finer than the first. But is it credible that the Directors made Lee, the able violoncello-player from Hamburg, play some variations after the opera was finished, and had an act of 'Otello' to wind up with? We could not stay out such a tasteless exhibition.
