Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - October, 1840

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 272:

The Mendelssohns gave an evening party, when David's quartet playing was admirable. I played my 'E major Concerto' and 'Studies.' To end up, Felix called for my repertoire of tricks on the piano, and we extemporized together as a finale, a production quite as good as our last effort in London.
