Concert Pleyel and Viardot
George Sand to Pauline Viardot: "Great, grandissime news, little Chip Chip performs huuuuge concert. […] He finally got convinced." However, she adds that Chopin "doesn’t want any posters, no programme, no crowd, he doesn’t want people to talk about him. So many things frighten him, that I suggest he should perform without candles, without people, on a mute piano."
Fryderyk Chopin performed in the Pleyel salon on April 26 together with Heinrich Wilhelm Ernst, violinist, and Laura Damoreau-Cinti, singer. Chopin performed preludes, mazurkas, Ballade in F major, Scherzo in C-sharp minor, etudes and nocturnes. In the audience there were among others: Adam Mickiewicz, Stefan Witwicki, and Franz Liszt, Hector Berlioz, Heinrich Heine and Eugène Delacroix. Later George Sand wrote to Hyppolyte Chatiron: "In two hours, with his two hands, he earned six thousand Franks among ovation, encores, and pattering of the prettiest ladies in Paris."
