MR. MOSCHELES’ RECENT TOUR.
To the EDITOR of the HARMONICON.
SIR, Nov. 22, 1832.
…Hummel subsequently gave a grand dinner party, at which many of the principal nobility and the most distinguished artists were present. On this occasion Moscheles and Hummel played extemporaneously on one piano-forte, and the applause they received was correspondent to the extraordinary talents of two such artists.
I am, Sir, yours, &c. C. F. W
