Chopin in Vienna - December, 1830

from Selected Correspondance of Fryderyck Chopin, page 72:

I have just returned from seeing Slavik, the famous violinist whom I have made friends with; I've heard nothing like him since Paganini he can play ninety-six notes staccato with one stroke of the bow, and other such things: incredible!
