Another event deserves mention, viz., the first appearance, in England, of Sivori, the violinist at Her Majesty's Theatre, on the 18th May of this year. Much credit was due, I had heard, to the talent of this celebrated pupil of the great Paganini, and at once I decided to bring him to England. He was received by the opera-frequenters with admiration, even with enthusiasm. The instrument he played upon was the magic violin bequeathed to him by his dying master, and the fanciful legends of Italy having set afloat a notion that the soul of Paganini had taken refuge in the instrument, the popular ear, charmed by the young artist, listened credulously to the fable. Even in England the press declared that "Sivori was not Sivori — it was Paganini restored to another generation in a renovated and younger form."
