CRYSTAL PALACE CONCERTS (excerpt)

Then we have had a new composition, in the shape of a concertino, for violoncello, with orchestral accompaniments, composed by Mr. Arthur S. Sullivan, expressly for Signor Piatti, by whom the solo part was played with a perfection that would have justified the composer in thinking even more of his work than under other circumstances might fairly have been its due.

We hope to hear this concertino again, and meanwhile warn Mr. Sullivan that the present hopes of musical England rest in him.
