Charles Burney in Rome - 12 October, 1770, at night
After dinner I went to Crispi’s academia which was the best of all those I had heard at his house. I subscribed to his quartettos 2 or 3 of which were played after the company was gone and pleased me much more than his sinfonies which are too furious and noisy for a room or indeed any other place. He made me a present of his duo, which I heard and liked much the first night I saw him. There was a young man Signor Ruma, who played the violin in a very delicate and pleasing manner.
