The Sheffield Independent (March 7, 1835): 2.

SHEFFIELD SUBSCRIPTION CONCERTS.—The fourth concert of the first series of the revived subscription concerts, took place yesterday evening, in the Music-Hall. There was a very numerous and fashionable attendance, and the concert went off with great and deserved eclât [sic]. The principal vocal performers were Miss Woodyatt, Mr. Horncastle, and Mr. Parry, jun. Miss W. sang, in exquisite style, the aria, “Se amore,” and the sweet ballad, “I care na where laddie bides.” Her manner is very pleasing, she has charming voice, and, from the manner in which she was received, there can be doubt she will be a favourite here. She also sang, with Mr. Horncastle and Mr. Parry, several duets and trios. The duet—“Dearest, let thy footsteps follow,” which is splendid music, was very beautifully sung by Miss Woodyatt and Mr. Parry. The trio, ‘‘This magic woven scarf,” is excellent, and was very well sung. Mr. Horncastle has a fine tenor voice, and is a beautiful singer. In that touching ballad, “Oh ’tis the melody,” Mr. Parry accompanied himself on the harp, and was warmly encored. The audience had unexpected treat, of a high order, in Mr. Boëhm, an amateur, who played solo on the flute in first rate style. Indeed, it could not be considered inferior to Nicholson’s performance on the same instrument. Mr. Moschelles, the piano-forte, fully maintained his high reputation. His grand fantasia and variations on the air, “Au claire de lune,” [sic] and his extemporaneous performance on the piano-forte, were splendid. Mr. Rudersdorff’s solo the violin was good, but not equal to Nagel’s performance. The overtures, “Zampa” and “Fra Diavola,” were well executed and effective. On the call of Dr. Younge, heartily seconded by the whole company, “God save the King” ended the concert. The subscribers generally appeared highly gratified, and we believe it will be unanimously agreed that it was a very line concert. The management these concerts has been admirable. We have had Madame Stockhausen, Signor Sapio, Signor Masoni, Clara Novello, Mr. Machin, Mr. Lintey, Mr. Moschelles, Mr. Boëhm, and others, forming such a combination of first rate talent as, it may safely be said, no series of concerts ever before given in this town has presented. After such commencement, it is impossible to doubt that the number of subscribers will soon be completed, and the concerts conducted prosperously.

SHEFFIELD, March 7

Our fourth subscription concert last night was attended by about seven hundred persons, who were highly gratified with the singing of Miss Woodyatt, Mr. Horncastle, and Mr. Parry, jun., who were all new to us, but we hope to see and hear them again; for we trust that the manner in which their exertions were rewarded by the company was highly satisfactory to them. Spohr’s duet, “Dearest, let thy footsteps follow;” Barnett’s “Magic Scarf;” Gcss’s “There’s beauty on the mountain;” Parry’s “Yes, these are the meadows,” and “I care na’ where my laddie bides,” were greatly admired. Mr. Parry, jun., was loudly encored in “Oh, ’tis the melody,” accompanying himself on the harp, which was a novelty here. Moscheles’ performance on the pianoforte was truly wonderful; his “Anticipations of Scotland,” and “Au clair de lune,” were charmingly executed, while his extemporaneous performance drew forth the most rapturous plaudits. It would not be doing justice to our talented leader, Mr. Rudersdorf, not to notice his solo on the violin in the most favourable manner; and the band altogether deserves the greatest credit for the spirited style in which they performed two overtures, and the correct way in which the vocal pieces were accompanied. “God save the King” was loudly called for, and sung with an additional verse in honour of the Queen, which was loudly applauded.

Moscheles: Sheffield, February 5th, 11 o’clock [after the concert].—The concert is over. To-day was a busy one, and while writing to you I feel like a stage-coach horse just arrived, and steaming after his work is over. I was up at 5, started at 6, here by 3.30. Immediately went off to rehearsal; then dinner and concert. They wanted The Fall of Paris again, but I only played the finale twice, and escaped a threatened encore of my extempore playing by bowing my acknowledgments. [RMM, 188]

Sheffield Independent (February 9, 1833): 2.

THE CONCERT.—On Tuesday evening, Mr. Dawson gave what was announced as the last concert of the season. We are sorry to announce that on this occasion, the attendance was scarcely sufficient to repay the outlay of the manager. The attractions of the evening were certainly not very numerous; but it might have been anticipated that the reputation Mr. Moscheles has obtained as one of the first pianists of the day, would have drawn together a larger assemblage of the amateurs. His fantasia, in the first part of the concert, embodying what the musician termed “Recollections of Ireland,” produced what is generally called “a sensation” amongst his hearers. Miss Hardman sung two or three songs during the evening, in a very pleasing and promising manner. Notwithstanding “the last concert of the season” has been, as far as the manager is concerned, a failure, we trust the general success which Mr. Dawson has met with during the season, will encourage him to further exertions for the gratification of the musical public.

Sheffield Iris (February 12, 1833): 1.

THE LAST CONCERT.—The result of this final attempt for the season, is not likely to encourage Mr. Dawson or anybody else again to run the risk of paying the piper. Will it be believed that the saloon was scarcely half full? and that too, with such a musical banquet as was never before offered to a Sheffield audience.—Shame! shame!
