Chopin in London - May, 1848

from Selected Correspondance of Fryderyck Chopin, page 316:

Yesterday at Covent Garden Mme Viardot sang my Mazurkas and they were encored. She came to see me with her husband when they arrived. I went to return her visit but she was out. She was much more affable than in Paris and sang my Mazurkas without my asking her.
