Chopin in Warsaw - June, 1830

from Selected Correspondance of Fryderyck Chopin, pages 47-48:

The same thing happened again yesterday with Rode's Variations. She [Mlle Sontag] sang us that celebrated cavatina from the Barber and the one from The Thieving Magpie; you wouldn't believe how different it is from what you have hitherto heard. She also sang the aria from Freischutz, you know the one I mean, marvellously.
