Beethoven : Overture to Fidelio transcribed for 4 hands by Moscheles.  London, [c.1825].  The commission to arrange the piano and vocal and piano solo scores of Beethoven's opera in its final version had been the means of introducing Moscheles to the composer and establishing a continuing friendship.  Both arrangements were published by the Vienna publisher Artaria in 1814.  The present arrangement for 4 hands is a later version, first published in London.
