Ignatz Moscheles in London - at the end of 1836

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 229:

I find his introduction of harp effects on the piano quite original. His theme, which lies in the middle part, is brought out clearly in relief with an accompaniment of complicated arpeggios which remind me of a harp. The audience is amazed.
