Chopin’s concert in Glasgow was held in the Marchant Hall on 27 September 1848 and was preceded by numerous announcements in the local press. ‘Matinee concert in Glasgow’s Marchant Hall. Also performing is the singer Giulietta Adelaiso. Chopin gives a programme consisting of the Impromptu, Op. 36, a couple of Etudes from Op. 25, a couple of nocturnes, the Berceuse, one of the ballades, and preludes, mazurkas and waltzes. Among the audience is Marcelina Czartoryska (“just the same goodness as a year ago. I revived somewhat under their Polish roof”) and also “several dozen ‘noblesses’”. The very next day, the Glasgow Courier carries an exceptionally complimentary review: the playing of Chopin “over the course of an hour and a half delighted and riveted all of those present. […] The way in which Mr Chopin treats the piano is peculiar to himself alone, and his style is the harmonious combination of elegance, plasticity and wit. All the numbers on the programme were warmly applauded, and the audience left the hall with an expression of the greatest satisfaction”.’ [Tomaszewski, Chopin…].
