[?]Second edition. Moscheles: Thematisches Verzeichniss p. 33. WorldCat (1 copy only in the U.S., at Yale). Dated according to IMSLP (both plate numbers of the present edition listed). The edition by Maurice Schlesinger, Paris (PN M.S. 1772) seems to be earlier (1834).

"The majority of Moscheles’s compositional output is piano music... With the development of his travelling career, he turned more to display pieces and piano concertos, the latter forming the bulk of his small orchestral output... His output also includes chamber works such as... the Septet op.88, which is... in parts, texturally akin to a miniature piano concerto. In all his more serious works Moscheles was capable of skilfully wrought musical structures, in which a Classical balance of thematic ideas is tempered with an early Romantic dynamism."
