Charlotte Moscheles in London - 31 December, 1839

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 262:

On the last night of the old year we had charades, etc., the musical friends taking the chief parts: Thalberg, grave and solemn at the piano, is up to any fun away from it. Benedict, the hard-worked, enters into the mirth of the masqueraders; last, not least, Moscheles enlivens the scene with his gymnastics on the piano.
