Review

The Bath Chronicle (December 8, 1842): 3.

SECOND GRAND SUBSCRIPTION CONCERT.—This magnificent musical banquet, which took place at the Assembly Rooms on Tuesday evening, was graced with a most numerous company, composed of the élite of our city. The musical attractions were a scale of such liberality and surpassing excellence that the attendance was not to wondered at. The large room was completely full. The announcement of performers of such distinguished professional celebrity as these engaged for the occasion could not fail to draw an overflowing audience. It was a just meed of public favour to the spirited efforts of the caterer of the feast to render it worthy of the taste the times. The Concert opened with Mendelssohn’s fine overture, “The Midsummer Night’s Dream,” which the band, comprising a host of talent, directed by Mr. H. C. Cooper, gave effect. Callcott’s glee, “With sighs, sweet rose,” sung by Miss M. B. Hawes, Mr. Pyne, Mr. B. Taylor, and Mr. Machin, was         t ably sung, and elicited an encore. Miss Hawes shone conspicuously in it. This highly-gifted lady also exhibited her great powers to great advantage in several songs, which called forth a profusion of richly-deserved plaudits, and in two instances she was encored. Mr. E. Loder’s naval song, “The British Anchor,” was sung by Mr. Machin in very excellent style. The company was next favoured with the performance of Madame Caradori Allan, whose appearance in the orchestra was hailed with rapturous applause. Her eminent vocal accomplishments were well brought out in the first piece which she sang the present occasion. It was Donizetti’s Ana, “In questo semplici,” in which the richness of her tones, and the facility with which she adapted them to the character of the composition, gave her audience a fair opportunity of judging and appreciating the capabilities of this celebrated artiste. The showers plaudits which followed her performances in this and other pieces evinced the warmest predilection for her efforts. She was encored in several of her songs. M. Moscheles. and Mr. Esain, the pianists, exhibited, on two superb instruments, extraordinary specimens of genius. Moscheles’ grand extemporaneous Fantasia on one of Erard’s piano-fortes was a masterly exemplification of the power of the instrument and the powers of the performer. The vocal part of the Concert is concluded up by Costa’s Quartett, “Ecco quel fiero instante,” sung by Madame C. Allan, Miss Hawes, Mr. B. Taylor, and Mr. Martin; it went off in excellent style. The Grand Finale (instrumental) brought up the close with admirable effect. The musical public are under great obligations to Mr. H. Simms for this splendid entertainment, the great success of which augurs most satisfactorily for the remaining Concerts of the series.

Die nächste Concertstation (3. Januar) war Liverpool. Es wird von Interesse sein, die Beschreibung dieser Reise in Moscheles’ eigenen Worten ungekürzt wiederzugeben, weil sie die Beschwerlichkeiten, die damals mit einer grösseren Reise verknüpft waren und von denen unser Dampfzeitalter sich kaum mehr einen Begriff machen kann, eindringlich vorführt.[1] [AML I, 112.]

The Bath Chronicle (February 6, 1823): 3.

The Sixth Subscription Concert took place at the Assembly Rooms last evening. Fortunately for the Directors of these elegant entertainments, the power attraction to them seems to advance in an uniformly increasing ratio. In the course of many years’ experience we remember not to have seen this Room so completely filled as it was this evening: the company were literally wedged together, and locomotion was almost impracticable. Numbers, we understand, despairing of admission, retired from the bustling scene. The orchestra itself was so crowded with company as scarcely to allow space for the operations the band; of course the effect of the performance could not be very greatly improved by such a state of things, nor the audience (those only who find enjoyment in a squeeze of this kind excepted) be very essentially augmented by it. In the bill fare, however, for the evening there was much of what was truly beautiful and admirable, both in the instrumental and vocal department. Mr MOSCHELLES, the very extraordinary performer on the piano-forte, who exhibited his great talents the preceding concert, was now not less brilliant, and was again enthusiastically encored. This gentleman is truly phenomenon in his profession. Mr. VAUGHAN sang “Comfort ye, my people,” and “Every valley shall he exalted,” with his accustomed taste and neatness of execution, together with several other pieces; which were warmly and deservedly applauded. The fair star the evening, and the universal favourite every where, was Miss STEPHENS; whose appearance every hand as well heart greeted with the most lively indications of pleasure. We have not language adequately to describe the very natural grace, the unaffected purity, the perfect elegance, and the charming softness, mellowness, and richness the strains poured forth from the “honied [sic] lips” of this angelic songstress.

All hearts were enchanted by it; and was with the utmost reluctance that the delighted and crowded audience permitted this powerful syren [sic] to retire from their presence. In Mozart’s most beautiful song, “Done Sono,” in the opera of Figaro; “Auld Robin Grey,” Mr. Bishop’s sweet Echo Song, and the very popular air, “We’re a’ noddin,” she afforded the highest gratification to all present. At this concert a new candidate for public favour, Miss FIELD, the daughter of our respectable townsman and musical professor, Mr. FIELD, was introduced for the first time into an orchestra; and displayed very considerable powers of voice and cultivation in the exquisite song of Handel, “Ye sacred Priests,” and in the celebrated air of Bach, “Confessa, abbandonata,” which she sang in a very superior style of execution, and with much taste. Rarely have we witnessed a more promising specimen of talent this kind. The young vocalist was received by the audience in a manner which must have been very encouraging to her future exertions; which, with a voice of great extend, power, and flexibility, like Miss Field’s, aided by a correct ear, must, if we augur rightly, lead to very considerable eminence in the musical profession. Rossini’s new Overture to his Oratorio of “Cyrus in Babylon,” was performed as well as might he expected, under the peculiar situation of the orchestra, from the crowd of listeners who had gained admittance into it. But not withstanding a very considerable deduction from the pleasure of this Concert was made, in consequence the crowd and pressure, we truly rejoice at the very great success which has crowned the labours of the two able directors, Sir George Smart and Mr. Loder, and sincerely wish them a continuance of it. The former of these gentlemen conducted the Concert this evening with his usual and acknowledged ability. Mr. Bochsa disappointed the lovers of the harp his absence, occasioned, as was stated in the bills, a severe cold.

Hr. Moscheles, der noch am 22sten Januar in Paris war, am 28sten desselben Monats aber schon zu Bath 108 englische Meilen westlich von London Concert gab, und dessen Schnelligkeit sich also ausser den Fingern noch auf andere Glieder seines Körpers erstreckt, steht gegenwärtig auf dem Gipfel seines Glücks.

…Concerte zu Bath und Bristol. Hr. Loder, der berühmte Violinist und Sir George Smart haben dieses Jahr in genannten Städten eine Reihe von Concerten angefangen, die durch ihre vor treffliche Einrichtung und durch das Auftreten der ersten Sänger und Spieler Londons den philharmonischen Concerten wenig oder gar nichts nachgeben. Der Gegenstand der Bewunderung und Erstaunens war unser Moscheles, und wahrlich nichts kann über die Lobpreisung gehen, womit man ihn an beyden Orten überhäuft hat. Gegen 200 Personen, die sich ihn zu hören drängten, musste der Eingang verweigert werden und—was in englischen Concerten nie geschieht—die Damen verliessen ihre Sitze und drängten sich auf der Bühne nahe an ihn heran, um sein Spielen auch zu sehen.

The Bath Chronicle (January 30, 1823): 3. 741-742.

The Fifth Subscription Concert, which was held at the Rooms yesterday evening, was very numerously attended; and was not less excellent itself, nor less gratifying the ear, than the four preceding ones, which have attracted to them so crowded and splendid train of rank and fashion. Mr. MOSCHELLES, a most distinguished performer on the Piano-Forte, whose appearance in London a few seasons ago produced so extraordinary sensation in the musical world, presented himself for the first time in the Bath orchestra on this occasion, and was most enthusiastically received. We can imagine nothing of the kind more perfectly brilliant or more exquisitely finished than the style of this gentleman’s playing. The style of Mr. Moschelles’s compositions is quite fanciful and original, and peculiarly well suited to the astonishing extent and versatility of his powers. He played three times this evening, at the ardent and loud solicitation of the audience. Not the least wonderful quality belonging to Mr. Moschelles is his great talent at playing extempore; of which, besides performing his celebrated composition, the “Fall of Paris,” he now gave two very striking and memorable specimens. We were much pleased again to see and hear Mr. VAUGHAN in the Bath Concert-Room so correct, chaste, and sweet is his style of singing, always to arrest the attention, and captivate the ear, of the best judges of vocal merit. Miss GOODALL proved herself on this occasion a very improved and elegant singer: she was most warmly encored in Handel’s very beautiful melody, “Let wander not unseen.” Miss WOOD’s vocal exertions, likewise, in Rossini’s favourite song, “Una voce poco fa,” were received, as they confessedly deserved, with the approbation due to her well-known and great merit. Of Mr. PHILLIPS, as a vocal performer, we cease not to augur most favourably. Handel’s fine song, “Honour and arms,” was given by him in a very admirable style, and met with great applause. Mr. A. LODER, Mr. LEONARD, and Miss GEORGE contributed very essential assistance the vocal corps this evening. Mr. FIELD presided very judiciously and ably at the; Piano-forte, as Conductor. The whole performance, in fact, went off exceedingly well. We doubt not but Mr. Loder will obtain, at his Benefit Concert, that degree of support and patronage on the occasion, to which his distinguished professional merits, and his great exertions to promote the success these Concerts, in our humble opiniou [sic], so justly entitle him. Happily the Directors, we find, have adopted the old mode admission.

SUBSCRIPTION-CONCERT,

Conductor, MR. FIELD

Wir haben aus Londoner Blättern folgende interessante Nachrichten, welche sich besonders über das Clavierspiel, des bey allen Wienern in Audenken stehenden Virtuosen, Herrn Moscheles, verbreiten, wie folgt: Das fünfte Subscriptions-Concert, welches gestern Abends im Cassino gegeben wurde, war sehr zahlreich besucht, und war nicht weniger brillant und angenehm, als die vier vorhergehenden, welche ebenfalls eine grosse Versammlung vom ersten Rang an sich gezogen hatten. Herr Moscheles, ein ausgezeichneter Virtuose auf dem Pianoforte, dessen Erscheinen in London, vor Kurzem, eine so ausserordentliche Sensation in der musikalischen Welt gemacht, liess sich zum ersten Mahle, bey dieser Gelegenheit, in dem Bade-Concerten hören, und wurde enthusiastisch empfangen. Wir können uns nichts Vollendeteres und Brillanteres denken, als das Spiel dieses Virtuosen. (We can imagine nothing of the Kind more perfectly brillant or more exquisitely finished than the style of this gentlemans, playing.)

Der Styl in der Composition des Herrn Moscheles ist sehr phantastisch und originell, und besonders passend, für die vielseitige Fertigkeit seiner dem lautesten und wärmsten Beyfalle des Publicums. Nicht als die kleinste der Eigenschaften des Herrn Moscheles, ist sein grosses Talent extempore zu spielen, anzusehen; ausser seiner Composition: „der Fall von Paris,“ gab er noch zwey sehr effect volle, eklatante Productionen.

Wir waren sehr erfreut, Herrn Vaughan in dein Bade–Concertsälen wieder zu sehen und zu hören; so correct, süss und angenehm ist seine Manier zu singen, dass sie selbst die ersten Kenner der Vocal-Musik entzückt. Miss-Goodall zeigte sich bey dieser Gelegenheit als sehr gebildete Sängerinn. Händel’s herrliche Romanze: „Let me vander not unseen!“ musste sie auf allgemeines Begehren wiederhohlen; Miss Wood, welche Rossini’s beliebte Arie: „Una voce poco fa,“ sang, wurde mit ihrem grossen und allgemein bekannten Verdienste gebührendem Beyfall aufgenommen.

Von Herrn Phillips, als Sänger, prophezeyen wir das Beste. Händel’s schöner Gesang: „Honour and arms,“ wurde von ihm äusserst vortrefflich gesungen, und mit grossem Beyfall anerkannt. Herr A. Loder, Herr Leonard und Miss George, trugen das ihrige redlich bey, um den Genuss dieses Abends zu erhöhen. Unser hochgeschätzter Field leitete das Ganze am Pianoforte. Das Concert war wirklich vorzüglich zu nennen.

Wir zweifeln nicht, dass Herr Loder bey seinem Benefiz-Concert, so viel Beweise von Wohlwollen empfangen wird, als seine ausgezeichneten Bemühungen und rastloser Fleiss, den Erfolg dieser Concerte zu bewirken und selbe zu heben, es verdienen.
