Louis Spohr in St. Petersburg - in the beginning of 1803
During Lent, the Greek church allowing no theatrical representations, the Intendancy of the Court theatre gave two concerts weekly in the Steiner theatre, in which, only virtuosi of the Imperial orchestra performed, among whom Herr Eck was now reckoned. The best whom I had the opportunity of hearing there were the violinist Hartmann, Jerchow and Remi, the violinist Delphino, the hautboyist Scherwenka, and the hornist Hirschfeld.
