Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - February, 1850
from Recent Music and Musicians, page 360:
We have heard Mendelssohn's ' Œdipus;' the deep pathos of the choral music, the 'ring of ancient days,' acted like magic on my senses, and I felt recalled to the classic times of Grecian poetry. The audience forgot to applaud, whether from ignorance or excess of delight, I cannot say.
