William Beatty-Kingston in Rome - 1869
The one really musical salon of Rome was that of the Princess Pallavicini, to which my kind old friend. Cardinal Haynald, himself an excellent pianist and ripe musician, procured me the entrée. But, with the exception of Ramaciotti, Sgambati, and Pinelli, a nephew and pupil of the Roman violinist, all the performers at the " Pallavicini Wednesdays " were of foreign birth and training.
