TAYLOR, PARRY, T. COOKE, PARRY, jun., and several amateurs. Mrs. ANDERSON and MOSCHELES performed HUMMEL’S magnificent pianoforte duet in A flat, with that admixture of spirit, taste, and delicacy which the composition requires; in short, it was a perfect performance. NICHOLSON displayed his matchless talent on the flute, to the high gratification of the company. He was extremely well accompanied in his fantasia by Sir GEO. SMART on the pianoforte. After the Concert the company partook of an elegant supper.
