In those days DE BERIOT'S music reigned supreme in the concert-room until the appearance of PAGANINI. It had not yet gone out of fashion, and I remember hearing OURY play DE BERIOT'S showy first concerto -with a full orchestra, at the Pavilion, in a way which reminded me of some conqueror traversing a battle-field; the enthusiasm he aroused was quite remarkable, in that languid and ignorant crowd of loitering triflers. He certainly brought the house down. He was a great player, though past his prime, and he knew how to score point after point without ever sacrificing his musical honour by stooping to clap-trap.
