Chopin in Warsaw - June, 1830
from Selected Correspondance of Fryderyck Chopin, page 49:
Mlle Sontag will today sing excerpts from Semiramide. Her concerts are short; she usually sings four groups and in the intervals only the orchestra plays. Indeed one needs a breathing-space after she has sung she rivets one's attention so much.
