Programme Notes: According to the review by the Dublin Evening Mail on February 1, the concert was opened with the trio and not with the overture—There were a lot of advertisements starting from December for the Four Subscriptions concerts by Mr. and Mrs. Ashe. Moscheles, after his second concert on January 23, decided to extend his stay in Dublin and to perform at the first concert of Mr. and Mrs Ashe. Therefore, I am only including advertisements after January 23.

Review

Dublin Evening Mail (February 1, 1826): 3.

MR. AND MRS. ASHE’S CONCERTS.—The first of Mr. and Mrs. Ashe’s Four Private Concerts took place on Friday last, on which occasion near three hundred fashionables were highly gratified with the selection of the evening. Moschele’s extraordinary powers were heard to even more advantage than at the Rotunda, in consequence of the room being more favourable for the Pianoforte. Three of the Misses Ashe opened the Concert with a charming terzetto, and rendered it still more so by their very interesting manner and appearance. Miss Ashe’s Non je ne veux pas chanter, and a new ballad, composed (for the occasion, we believe) by an amateur of this City. You’ll love me, won’t you! was given with a naiveté and expression peculiarly her own; and the favourite duet of Jess Mac Pharlane, with her sister, created a general sensation of delight. The youngest of the three sisters displayed a masterly hand on the Harp, in one of Bochsa’s most brilliant compositions, and was received with great applause. A Mr. Lichtendal made his first appearance at these Concerts, and sung with good taste. Mr. R. Walsh was Leader, Mr. Pigott, Violoncello, and Mr. W. Walsh presided at the Piano-forte. The manner in which these Concerts are conducted deserved the distinguished patronage they have met with, and, no doubt, will continue to receive.

MOSCHELES.

This celebrated composed and performer, is expected to arrive shortly in this city. It will be his first visit to Ireland, which he makes, we understand, with the intention of giving some Concerts early in January. We congratulate our fellow-citizens on the opportunity that will be thus afforded them of hearing the performance of a man who is so highly celebrated and honoured in his profession, and whose name certainly stands in the first rank.

—Moscheles has been justly famed at the Philharmonic Society in London, and is Professor to the Academies of Music at London, Paris, and Sweden. The extraordinary power, taste, and elegance of his performance on the Piano forte has naturally obtained universal applause, and we know of no city where he would be so likely to meet a just tribute to his great talents as in Dublin.

Amongst the testimonies to Mr. Moscheles’ distinguished powers, we can state that he attended the Lord Gentleman’s party at the Viccregal Lodge, on Monday evening where the most flattering compliments were paid to [*] exquisite skill by their Excellencies, and their noble visitors.

Dublin Evening Post (January 14, 1826): 3.

MR. MOSCHELES CONCERT.—The first Concert of Mr. Moscheles took place last evening, at the Rotunda. The interest excited by the fame of this Gentleman’s talents attracted a numerous and fashionable attendance.—Mr. M.’s command of the instrument is truly astonishing, whether considering in relation to force, delicacy, or rapidity. As Catalani, in vocal art, bursts through all the fetters commonly imposed, so, Mr. M. appears to disdain (because he is thoroughly acquainted with) technical rules.—The most extraordinary part of Mr. M.’s playing is, perhaps, the velocity and the certainty with which he passes from one distant interval to another. His thumbs seem to act as intermedia points, from which his fingers are directed, almost to the most remote parts of the instrument, over which they fly with a rapidity wholly inconceivable; yet the uniformity of touch and tone are so strictly preserved, that an imperfect is never, and an unfinished note is seldom, heard. Every great player has his forte, and in this species of execution Mr. M. is unrivalled.

Mr. and Miss Ashe contributed their powerful aid. Mrs. Hadyn Corri, in Rosini’s di Piacer, obtained considerable applause.

ROTUNDA CONCERT.

MR. MOSCHELES.

This celebrated perform gave his First Concert in this city last night—it was attended by all the wealth and rank of the metropolis. In fact we have not, for some time, beheld a more fashionable or numerous assemblage. The performance of Monsieur Moscheles, was, of course, the peculiar novelty of the night; his execution is singularly expressive, delicate and effective. The extemporaneous Fantasia in the second act, in which he introduced “The last Rose of Summer” and “Garyowen,” called forth the most decisive and merited applause—an encore was demanded principally by the ladies present. Mr. Moscheles re-appeared, and gave another delightful extemporaneous specimen of his very singular abilities in a manner really unequalled. The delightful air of “Roy’s Wife,” a duet by Mrs. and Miss Ashe, met with the highest approbation. Monsieur Moscheles is sure to command, at his next Concert, a similarly fashionable and crowded attendance.

Moscheles: January 11th—Introduced to the Anacreontic Society, consisting of amateurs who perform admirably the best orchestral works. The usual supper followed. After propitiating me with a trio from Così fan tutte, they drew me to the piano, but I did not trust the old worn-out instrument, and only played the overture to Figaro. My health was proposed at supper, and I had to return thanks. [RMM, 78.]

Moscheles in Dublin.

Mehrere musikalische Societäten in Dublin, die da etablirt sind, beweisen in welchem hoben Grade die Irrländer empfänglich und warm fühlend für Musik sind. Die vorzüglichsten dieser Gesellschaften sind: The Anacreontic Society, in welche Moscheles vor Kurzem feyerlich eingeführt und zum Ehrenmitglied ernannt wurde; sie besteht größtentheils aus Liebhabern, und hat in der Saison wöchentlich ein Zusammenkommen um große Instrumental-Stücke, Sinfonien u. auch Quartetts und Vocal-Musik aufzuführen.…Uebrigens von Moscheles Aufnahme und seinen gegebenen Concerten zu reden, so muß Referent, auf die Dubliner-Blätter hinweisen. Man vergöttert ihn so zu sagen; man erschöpft sich in Lobe-erhebungen, man ist entzückt Kalkbrenner den zweyten, oder eigentlich ihn mehr als den ersten, bewundern zu können. Moscheles ist der belebende Strahl aller Cirkel, und noch nie bat ein Künstler eine solche Aufnahme gefunden; man nennt ihn das kostbarste Kleinod, was gegenwärtig die musikalische Welt besitzt. s. — g.

Moscheles: 9. Januar. „Heute bekam ich durch den Colonel Shawe, Adjutant des Lord Lieutenant Marquis of Wellesley, den Bescheid, seine Herrschaft würde mein Concert am 13.  Januar besuchen; es solle auch unter ihrer patronage vor sich gehen; heute aber möge ich im Phönixpark im grossen Circle spielen. Ich bereitete mich so geschwind als möglich vor und sandte mein Instrument dort hin. Um 9 Uhr Abends fuhr ich in dem mir bereit gestellten Galawagen in einer halben Stunde hinaus und fand die ganze Noblesse Irlands im Phönixpark versammelt, da diese Soiree die erste der neu verheiratheten Marchioness of Wellesley war. Einige Gesangstücke, sowie ein Terzett für 2 Guitarren und Physharmonica (von Schulz und dessen Söhnen) gingen während der lebhaftesten Conversation der hohen Herrschaften, unbeachtet vorüber. Der Lord-Lieutenant unterbrach diese, indem er mich französisch ansprach, meiner schmeichelhaften Empfehlung von Seiten des Fürsten Esterhazy erwähnte und mich zu spielen ersuchte. Da er sich mit der Marchioness in die unmittelbare Nähe des Claviers setzte, und da er, der fünfundsechszigjährige Herr, sich an meiner Phantasie über irländische Melodien begeisterte, so begeisterte sich auch der ganze Kreis. Nach der Pause, in welcher Erfrischungen gereicht wurden, wiederholten sich die Vorgänge des ersten Theeles, und dann setzte der Lord-Lieutenant seiner Gunst die Krone auf, indem er mir herablassend die Hand schüttelte (shook hands). Ich machte viele nützliche Bekanntschaften. [AML I, 115.]

Letter: I. Moscheles to Charlotte Moscheles.

Manchester, 12 November 1825

….Von Mr. Pigott aus Dublin, hatte ich einen Brief in welchem er mit sagt dass mein Concert  schwerlich am 21te statt finden kann, weil in kurzen eine Feyerlichkeit für den Lord Lieutenant vor sich gehen soll zu der der Concert Saal in Anspruch genommen werden dürfte, und Vorbereitungen erheischt. Ich bin mit ihm übereingekomenn am 16t eine entscheidende Antwort von 8 Tage brauchte, so bin ich entschlossen die Reise vor der Hand aufzugeben. [H. R.]
