MADAME PUZZI’S CONCERT.
There was a brilliant assemblage of rank and fashion on Monday evening at Signor and Madame PUZZI’S Concert, which was given, under very high patronage, at Lady AUGUSTA WENTWORTH’S residence in Connaught-place. The programme contained a great variety of vocal and instrumental compositions, which were done ample justice to by the performers, who were of the first eminence. Madame PUZZI sang Ah! che forse, with the Signor’s horn obligato, in excellent style; and in a duet, by ROSSINI, with TAMBURINI, displayed vocal powers of a very high order; the applause was universal and rapturous. A concertante by MOSCHELES (pianoforte), LABARRE (harp), and PUZZI (horn), was a splendid performance; and the manner in which PUZZI executed SONTAG’S variations on RHODE’S air both astonished and delighted the audience.

—Signor and Madame Puzzi had a delightful concert on Monday night, at the residence of Lady Augusta Wentworth, in Connaught place. It was attended by a numerous list of fashionables and amateurs,, [sic] and went off with great spirit and effect. Madame Puzzi was in excellent voice, and sang with all her accustomed purity of expression and taste. The incomparable horn-playing of Puzzi himself, was another leading attraction of the evening. These, together with the exquisite execution of Madame Cinti Damoreau, the splendid voice and rich style of Tamburini, and the wild mountain notes of Madame Stockhausen, rendered the evening a real musical treat.
