Chopin in Dresden - November, 1830

from Selected Correspondance of Fryderyck Chopin, pages 63-4:

Of course the first person I visited here was Mlle Pechwell. She played at the music club on Friday and introduced me there. That very same evening the theatre was giving La Muette and it was difficult for me to choose, but since it was important to support the lady I went to the soiree. Another important reason which induced me to go was that the best local singer, Mme Palazzesi, of Italian extraction, would be singing... First they played the Fra Diavolo overture, then the Italian sang not at all badly.
