After his departure from Warsaw, Chopin travels to Vienna. During 6 to 9 November he stays with Tytus Woyciechowski in Wrocław. In his letter to the family (9 November) he writes "We arrived in comfort and in good weather on Saturday [6 November] at 6 in the evening. We stopped in "Zur goldened Gans" [Under Golden Goose]. Soon we went to the theatre, where the King of the Alps was staged [by Ferdinand Raimund], in Poland it will be staged only in some time." On November 8, Chopin performed in Resurs: "I performed for them the romance and the rondo from the Concerto No. 2 in E minor. At the rehearsal Germans were surprised by my performance: "Was für ein leichtes Spiel hat er" [How smooth are his strokes], they said, and about the composition, nothing. Even Tytus heard one saying that: "I can perform, but not compose". […] Apart from Rondo I have also improvised for the connoisseurs on the theme of The Mute Girl from Portici [by Daniel Auber]. At the end overture was performed; next, dances took place."
Another stop on the voyage is Dresden, where Chopin arrived on the 12th of November.
