Charles E Halle - mid 19th Century

from Life and letters of Sir Charles Hallé; being an autobiography (1819-1860) , page 161:

Nothing, however, took my father [Charles Halle] away for long from his beloved piano...how delightful it was on hot summer nights to sit in the garden, or on the low wall overhanging the sea, and hear the ' Moonlight ' and other divine sonatas played as only my father could play them.
