Elizabeth (Bessy) Moore et al. in Paris - 12 February, 1822

from Memoirs, Journal and Correspondence of Thomas Moore, page 326:

Bessy and I went with the Miss Drews to dine at Lady Emily Henry’s: some beautiful playing on the violin in the evening by a young man, Obrecht (I think), an elève [sic] of Viotti’s, and possessing much of the sensibility of his touch.

Moore seems unsure of the violinist's name, spelling it as 'Obrecht' here, but as 'Obricht' elsewhere in his journal.
