A note from the Morning Post

It is generally thought the Ernst’s first Parisian appearance was in a concert with Madame Schroeder-Devrient at the Théâtre des Italiens (HWE:49), but the following note from the Morning Post, if not entirely reliable, may indicate another early concert:

It was at the Salle Laffitte at Profeti’s concert in the French capital that Ernst first appeared, creating the greatest sensation.
