in England, executed to perfection by Messrs. Becker, Hies, Doyle, and Piatti. It was listened to with profound attention, and the applause at the end of each movement showed how thoroughly the work was enjoyed. The other two quartets from the same pen are equally interesting, and equally worthy of the attention of the directors. Flourishing at an eventful period in the history of music, a contemporary of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven, besides being the centre of a circle of pianists, the most illustrious of whom were Clementi, John Cramer, Field, Stiebelt, Woelfl and Pinto, Dussek easily assumed the position to which his talents entitled him ; and now that the public of the present day are beginning to be familiarised with his music, we have little doubt that the name of Dussek will speedily become as well known to lovers of classical music, as that of more modern composers. The term "genial" has been much hacknied (tabooed under a fine in some quarters); yet there is no other that so well expresses the character of Dussek's music, and nowhere is it more forcibly illustrated than by the stringed quartet in £ flat, stamped as it is with an individual freshness, combined with perfect scholarship, delightful no less to the uninitiated amateur than to the connoisseur and professed musician. The remaining novelties were the recitative and air of Mozart's, and "Non sodonde viede," sung by Mdme. Sainton-Dolby, with the genuine feeling of an artist. Beethoven's sonata in D, Op. 10, No. 3, for pianoforte played (without book) with masterly skill, by Mr. Charles Halle. Mozart's sonata in Bflat, for piano and violin (No 15),(the one composed for Mile. Strinasacchi, under the romantic circumstances narrated in OulibichefFs Biography), in which M. Halle1 associated with Herr Becker, gave a reading, which left nothing to be desired, and Mr. Hatton's "Day and Night," sung by Mdme. Sainton-Dolby in her most effective manner. M. Halle' and Herr Becker were recalled at the end of Mozart's sonata.

By special desire, Mr. Sims Reeves repeated the recitative and air from Jephthah, which had caused so marked a sensation at his benefit. Anything more touching than the pathos infused into the recitative,"" Deeper and deeper still," and the air, "Waft her, angels, through the skies," it would be impossible to imagine. An enthusiastic recall was the result. Again did Mr. Beeves entrance his hearers with that bouquet melody of flowers, Beethoven's Lieder Kreie, as Schumann says, "the deepest, most soulful, most wonderful of love-song3,"—with whom for once in a way, we can cordially agree. Beethoven's trio in E flat (No. 1) brought this capital concert to a close. This was' also given for the first time, aud its reception should encourage an immediate reference to the other three.

Next Monday, the performance will be exclusively from the works of Mendelssohn; Mr. Sims Beeves, Mr. Charles Halle, M. Sainton, and the London Glee and Madrigal Union being engaged.

AMATEUR MUSICAL SOCIETY.

The crowded state of our columns will not allow us to do more than briefly chronicle the proceedings of last Monday evening. The following was the selection:—

Past I.—Symphony, in D—Beethoven. Song, "The beating of my own heart," Mias Fanny Rowland—G. A. Macfarren. Trio, for violin, violoncello, and contrabasso, No. 5, Hon. Seymour Egertpn, Mr. Henry Robley, and Rev. Dr. Rowden—Handel. Glee, "Once upon my cheek,** Miss Posbroke, Mr«. Dixon, Mr. Heni-y Rcgaldi, and Mr. Hodson—Callcott. Aria, "Casta Diva" (Norma), Madllo. Werner —Bellini. Overture (Ruy Bias), Mendelssohn.

Past II.—Concerto, in G minor, for the Pianoforte (Pianoforte, Madame Piatti)—Mendelssohn. Song, with Chorus, "Onward," Miss Fanny Rowland—Hon. W. Ashley. Aria (Stabat Mater), cornet-4pi-ton, Mr. A. B. Mitford—Uossini. National Swedish Melodies, Madile. Werner. Glee, "My love is like the red, red rose"—W. Knyvett. Overture (Le Part du Diable)—Aubcr.

Conductor—Mr. Henry Leslie.

Madame Piatti fairly astonished us by her admirable performance of Mendelssohn's Concerto, for we had no notion she possessed such talent as she displayed. She was much applauded, and most deservedly so,

The only other feature calling for particular notice was the charming singing of the glee party.

The last concert of the season will take place on Monday week.

CONCERTS.

Sacred Harmonic Society.—The performance of Itrael in Egypt on Friday week does not call for any lengthened comment, inasmuch as its right to rest on the same basis as the Messiah has long been accorded by the public, who evidence their appreciation of its excellence by the enormous attendance invariably present whenever and wherever it is performed. Exeter Hall, therefore, presented its usual appearance on the night in question; every part being densely crowded long before the commencement of the oratorio. To speak first of the choruses, which occupy by far the largest share of the work, it is sufficient to remark that they were given generally with that precision, combined with due attention to light and shade, to which their recent training under Mr. Costa has led us to expect, and produced the customary effect upon the audience, who loudly encored the " Hailstone chorus," and were frequent in their applause. Mr. Sims Reeves declaimed the terribly trying air, "The enemy said," with such tremendous energy that it was impossible to resist the calls for its repetition. Mdlle. Parepa did her best with the only air affording her an opportunity for display, " Thou didst blow," but, whether it was owing to the recollection of Madam Clara Novello (whom we are so soon to lose), did not altogether satisfy the critical ear. Mdlle. Parepa has fine natural gifts, but has not yet learnt all that is necessary to make a Handelian singer. Of Madame Sainton-Dolby we have only praise to utter, delivering the air, "Thine hand brought forth," in her most ingenious and fiuished manner. Miss Fanny Rowland sang with excellent skill and judgment, although her voice was somewhat overweighted by the more powerful organ of the composer. The duet, " The Lord is a man of war," met with the customary encore, and was sung by Siguor Belletti aud Mr. Santley without straining after that violent effect which generally makes this piece a shouting match rather than a vocal performance. Perhaps it might have been owing to the fact that neither gentleman can be considered a "basso profundo," being, strictly speaking, baritones. At the next performance Haydn's Creation is to be performed.

Society Of British Musicians.—A trial of new music took lace at St. Martin's Hall, on Saturday last.

M.R. Henry Leslie's Choir.—The programmes of these entertainments havo been occasionally blameworthy for sameness and repetition; the selections at the last two, however, exhibited novelties which relieved the monotony, and by their own intrinsic value raised the character above the somewhat trivial standard of former concerts. The Op. 78, No. 2 of Mendelssohn, a motet, for an eight part choir (given for the second time), is a work abounding in the most beautiful effects that the art of music can attain. The contrast of the unisonous opening with the harmonised close in each of the three first verses is as felicitous as the splendid and masterly counterpoint of the part writing throughout the work is ingenious and skilful. The eight parts are mostly "real" parts; and like many other works from the same pen, vocal and instrumental, reminds one frequently of the works of J. S. Bach, the emperor of the motet world, past, present, and to come.

The othergreatattractionof the eveningwas the "Paternoster," of Meyerbeer. While it is a great, and not ineffective, contrast to the work of Mendelssohn, it is replete with elegant musical idea, skilfully treated. It is also a model of construction, which prominent attraction impedes the flow of the melody in no single point. A song, by Mr. Henry Smart, " The Rhine is gently flowing," deserves especial mention, as one of the best of all his excellent works. A glee, of Callcott, " Once upon my cheek," was perfectly sung by Miss Fosbroke, Mrs. Dixon, Mr. Regaldi and Mr. Hodson.

The remainder of the programme presented no feature of interest or novelty, but the execution of the works showed no falling off in the capabilities of the choir. The Misses Leffler were announced for a vocal duet by Mr. Henry Leslie, but did not appear. The arrangement, by the same composer and conductor, of "Bule Britannia," was substituted, and most vociferously encored. The same distinction was accorded to the motet (Mendelssohn), and the glee "Once upon my cheek."

Mr. J. G. Calcott, the useful pianoforte accompanist of the solo pieces at the performances of Mr. Leslie's choir, played the wellKnown " Study in A minor," of Thalberg, and a Polonaise, by Weber, L'Hilaritt. Mr. Calcott'a playing in solo is, however, we think, a mistake.

Mr. And Mrs. Howard Paul re-appear at St. James's Hall on Monday, in their clever illustrations of character, with a variety of new songs. At the end of this month the present entertainment will be discontinued in London.

Islington.—Mr. H. Carvill gave his third annual concert on Wednesday evening, the 11th inst. at Myddleton Hall. In connection with the Islington Choral Society, he had a select madrigal choir, the Quartet Glee Union, and the following vocalists:—Miss Harrington, Miss E. Hordcr, Mrs. Robert Paget, R.A.M.; Mr. C. Henry, Mr. A. Lester, and Mr. Suchet Champion, with Mr. P. Watts, the concertina player, and Herr Albert Pieczonka and Mr. C. W. Jordan, pianists. Conductors, Messrs. G. W. Martin and H. Carvil. Some part songs and glees received every justice from the Choir and Glee Union. Miia Harrington sang Meyerbeer's" Robert, toi," and, with Mr. S. Champion, Wallace's "O, Maritana." Mrs. R. Paget, the favourite contralto, sang ■with artistic feeling " Rocked in the cradle of the deep," and Wallace's *' Gentle Troubadour,' (Lurline); Mr. A. Lester, in Balfe's "Sweetheart," made a favourable impression. Miss E. Hordcr, in "Yarico to her Lover," and Rode's air, sang effectively; Mr. S. Champion, in Reichardt's " Thou art so near," and "My love is like the red, red rose," was loudly applauded. The concertina playing of Mr. P. Watts pleased much; and the pianoforte solo by Herr Albert Pieczonka gave satisfaction to all present.

Bremen, April 3rd, 1860.—Our cyclus of "private concerts" was brought to a close last Tuesday, on wkicn occasion we had an emineutly classical programme, Haydn and Mozart, Beethoven and Cherubini, Spohr and Weber, being represented in it. The old master, Bach, also, was included in the band of illustrious deceased composers, and only one piece reminded us that we belonged to a later age. We allude to the violin concerto, performed by our visitor, Herr Joachim. This valuable and comprehensive composition has not long been completed. It was performed for the first time, not a fortnight since, before a large audience in Hanover. But it is not merely written in the Present, and conceived in the spirit of the age; it will, also produce its effect on the public of the Present; it is far from being Music of the Future, inasmuch as it will not have to wait till the Greek Kalends before its success is decided. There are, perhaps, not many modern musical compositions which, while so conscientiously carried out, and so carefully avoiding claptrap, produce so immediate and constantly increasing an effect. But there is also a future in store for it. We feel that this composition contains many treasures, which will be completely appreciated by the hearer only when he has heard it repeated several times, aud since, on account of the great technical qualification it demands, qualifications which few of our present violinists, besides its author, possess, it cannot be repeated very often, it will not soon cease to be new. This concerto, which bears the title "Nach Ungarische Weise," consists of three movements—an allegro, a romance, and a finale, '' alia zingarese" (" in the Zingaro fashion"). The last transports us, by its very title, to Hungary, but, even on the second movement, the Hungarian rhythms are perceptible, while, in the first allegro, as well, the motives present the same character. As is well known, Joachim was born in Hungary, and thus it was au easy task for him, guided by the reminiscences of his youth, to give the music anatural colour, withoutboi rowingany particular melodies. The work is farfrom being calculated for the exclusive display of virtuosity, as the composer has done full justice to the claims of the orchestra. In the first movement, indeed, the orchestra, to a certain extent, predominates, expressing, in a pleasing introduction, nearly the whole melodious substance of

the movement, before the violin chimes in and developes what has been thus performed; even in the interesting and elaborate cadence the solo instrument feels lonely, and calls to its aid some gentle sister instruments from the band. In the romance, however, this subordination ceases, and the orchestra and violin, as equal powers, enter on a course of beautiful melodic rivalry, at last combining in graceful harmonic unity; while, finally, in the third movement—the impulsive, sparkling, foaming preito, as restless as the inconstant Zingaros themselves—the violin, as a matter of course, assumes completely the upper hand; it decidedly takes the lead, although, even here, a few strains from the orchestra, now and then, mingle most charmingly in the musical maze. Both the composition and its rendering were received most warmly by the audience, and, after the Becond piece played by our guest—the songful adagio from Spohr's seventh concerto, given with the most feeling tenderuess—the applause was so unusually great, that, in return, he could not avoid making such a return as only he is capable of making. He played one of Bach's chaconne*—the same which he introduced on a previous occasion. Whenever Herr Joachim performs one of these compositions, we think that greater perfection of execution is impossible, but every repetition seems to prove that such an opinion is erroneous. Even in the chaconne, the delicate threads of this marvellous weft of tone appeared finer and clearer than ever.

The selections from Mozart and Haydn were again confided to Madame Engel, who sang, with good taste and her usual neatness, an air from the latter composer's Creation, and an air from the Idomeneo of the former (an air which is easily recognisable from its similarity to the Tamino air in Die Zaitberflite). The concert opened with Beethoven's Symphony in C minor, in which our orchestra is well up, and which it played once this winter at one of the "Symphonieconcerte." The symphony was admirably rendered. Of the two overtures, that of Cherubini to Medea was but coldly received, while that of Weber to Der Freitchiilz, enthusiastically executed, produced its accuBtomed exciting impression.

All's well that ends well! Thus may we conclude our concertnotices for a time, while looking back on the evening when the star of our greatest and most genial master of the violin shone in the musical firmament.—Weter Zeitung.

Paris.—Alary has returned to Paris after a brilliant season at Madrid. At St. Petersburg, it is said that, amongst the artists engaged for next season, are Mesdames Nantisr-Didiee, Bernardi, Zoretti; Signors Tamberlik, Calzolari, Mongini, &c.; and, it is said, Mdlle. Carvalho has been offered 20,000 francs a month. Madame Rosati has also returned to Paris.

Vienna{Extract from a Letter).—At the Theatre a la Wieden, Italian operas are being given with Madlle. Grua, Madame Charton, Mdlle. Lafont, and MM. Graziani, Fagotti, Ballerina, &c. It Barbiere, the opening performance, with the exception of Madame Charton's Rosina, and Signor Fagotti's Figaro, was by no means first-rate. Mdlle. La Grua will make her dibut in Norma shortly.
