Moscheles' only known symphony. Said (by several someones?) to have been premiered by Moscheles in London during Mendelssohn's first visit there apparently (this has been written a number of times anyway?) (Though there are references to Moscheles' "first" time conducting the orchestra that are from several years later, making this date questionable?)
Published by Maurice Schlesinger (piano duet reduction) in late 1830/early 1831 (BdlF, 1831, p.135.) This has been digitized (in a co-published Kistner version); dedication to the Musikverein etc. is taken from this digitization.
