MR. MOSCHELES’ RECENT TOUR.
To the EDITOR of the HARMONICON.
SIR, Nov. 22, 1832.
HAVING been in communication with the Continent during the time Mr. Moscheles was making his tour, I am enabled to send you a sketch of his operations; and as all matters tending to advance the respectability of the art, and give éclat to its professors, ever find a worthy place in your publication, I am inclined to hope that this may contribute in aid of your known views.
…His last concert took place at Cologne, on the 13th instant, and met with the greatest success. It was his intention to proceed to the Hague, to which place he had been solicited to go by the Grand Duchess of Saxe Weimar, who furnished him with the most flattering introductions to the Court; but he was deterred from taking advantage of these by the warlike aspect of that part of the continent.
Mr. Moscheles is hourly expected in London, and has probably reached England while I am penning this communication.
I am, Sir, yours, &c.
C. F. W.
