Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - December, 1844

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 308:

Yesterday I had a quiet evening with David, who played me the new violin Concerto, which Felix has expressly written for him. It is most beautiful, the last movement thoroughly Mendelssohnian, tripping like a dainty elf.
