SonataPiano: Mr. Moscheles; Violin: Mr. Kiesewetter  Mayseder
Principal Instrumentalists: Messrs. Kiesewetter, Moscheles


Moscheles: It was an awkward business! After we had all been repeatedly heard, Kiesewetter and I played Mayseder’s long sonata. Cramer’s exclamation, ‘Cela m’ennuie’, worked like a thunderclap on the easily excited Kiesewetter; he sprang indignantly from his chair, and we subsequently had a deal of trouble and worry to reconcile the two.
