Charles Halle in Paris - the 1840's

from Life and letters of Sir Charles Hallé; being an autobiography (1819-1860) , pages 108-109:

On its [a sonata] completion, Moscheles gave a grand evening party at Kalkbrenner's house to produce it before the artistic and literary world. It met with success, but has never eclipsed the first sonata, which remains superior to it in freshness of ideas.
