"NEWS OF THE DAY", The Sydney Morning Herald (27 June 1879), 5
EUROPEAN composers, it seems, have had their attention drawn to the forthcoming International Exhibition, as Charles D' Albert has sent out by the last mail sets of quadrilles and waltzes, which both bear the title of "Sydney Exhibition." The five quadrilles are designated, and the composition of the music supposed to typify, New South Wales, Victoria, England, Switzerland, and Germany. In the music one or two fragments of National airs are introduced, and taken as a whole the selection is pretty and sparkling. The same remark applies to the waltzes, which belong very much to the same school of composition, each piece being supposed to represent a nationality. The music is very simple and the melodies taking. Messrs. Moss and Co. are the agents, and it is through them that we have received the copies. The typography is in the best style of art.
