Ignatz Moscheles in Vauxhall - 8 July, 1828

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 144:

Today we attended a fashionable fete at Vauxhall, given on behalf of the poor Spanish and Italian refugees. The 'Battle of Waterloo' was performed, and the Duke saw himself admirably represented. The evening concluded with a concert, in which both Pasta and Sontag sang.
