Charlotte Moscheles in London - 1840

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 267:

For the two M.'s improvise together on themes for each other's works; when I call this 'glorious,' 'fine,' 'remarkable,' etc., the epithets all fall short of true description. I hadn't heard them play together for seven years, and my impression was, it was worth the trouble of waiting seven years for.
