Ignatz Moscheles in London - 30 April, 1832

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 178:

Today Mendelssohn played us his Cantata 'Die Erste Walpurgisnacht,' which I had heard and admired in former days in Berlin. Now that he has completely re-written it, I admire it still more. He also played me that charming Liederspiel, 'The Son and Stranger', written for the silver wedding of his parents, and lastly his overture to the 'Hebrides.'
