Programme of the Farewell Concert for the violinist Franz Cramer (1772-1848), Hanover Square Rooms, 27 June 1844. A highlight in the programme was the joint appearance of Mendelssohn and Moscheles in the latter's Hommage à Handel, Op.92. The next day's Morning Post reported "Mendelssohn and Moscheles ... Their performance animated the company to the highest degree." This brilliant 2-piano work had partly originated in a commission from John Baptist Cramer (brother of Franz and also appearing on the present occasion) for his Annual Concert in London in 1822.
