MR. SEDLATZEK’S CONCERT.
THE residence of Mr. Taylor, George Street, Hanover Square, was completely crowded on Saturday last by a fashionable auditory. Mr. Sedlatzek stands deservedly high as a flutist. His own performances, and the combined talent of almost all the vocalists in town, contributed to render this one of the best concerts of the season. Herz and Moschelles (the former the eager object of curiosity) performed a fantasia upon the march in Le Philtre. Applause commensurate with their brilliant and rapid execution was bestowed upon them. M. Herz wants but a small and invigorating portion of the Promethean fire, and to divest his performances of a somewhat mechanical precision which makes the spectator fancy that the soul, the real essence of music, is deficient, to render him the first pianiste in Europe. M. Sedlatzek performed on the flute both solos and in company with other instrumentalists, to the evident gratification of the audience. His variations upon the Carnival of Venice are specimens of light and agreeable composition. Mr. Mori’s concerto upon the violin, from Mayseder, was not successful. In attempting too much in the variations, he failed altogether. Dobler, Haitzinger, and Madame Devrient, sang several selections from Beethoven and Mozart. Rubini and Donzelli also contributed their services, and were warmly applauded in compositions, of which, having been already frequently noticed with approbation, a repetition would be but an echo.
