William Gardiner in London - early 19th Century

from Music and Friends: Or, Pleasant Recollections of a Dilettante, pages 691-692:

As an instance of... want of union, I heard a quartetto played in the Philharmonic, in which Mr. Lindley's bass stood alone — apart, as it were, from the other instruments. His tones would not amalgamate with those of Blagrove, Dando, and Tolbeque, but these gentlemen, when joined to Lucas, on the violoncello, unfold with apparent ease these extraordinary ideas.
