Autograph musical quotation signed "S. Thalberg" and dated Newcastle upon Tyne, September 11, 1849.

8 measures of a work for piano in the key of Eb, 3/4 time, marked "Lento" at head.

Slightly browned; light vertical stain to central portion; laid down to mounting sheet at corners of verso.

"Together with Liszt, Thalberg must be ranked as the greatest virtuoso pianist of the mid-19th century... With regard to Thalberg’s merits as a composer Schumann, who was not at all favourably disposed towards virtuosos, made an exception in this case." Robert Wangermèe in Grove Music Online.
