Charles Halle in Manchester - September, 1851

from Life and letters of Sir Charles Hallé; being an autobiography (1819-1860) , page 246:

Sainton played a fortnight ago at the Concert Hall, where, at last, we also had Madame Sontag. Spohr's ninth concerto, first-rate, only the double-stopping in the finale did not quite succeed ; moreover I find this finale very empty and tiresome.
