Program Details

Felice J. Eben is conducting because Theodore Thomas is in Europe.

No concert was given as part of the Popular Garden series on Saturday, June 15. The announcements for the first concert of the series indicate that no Saturday concerts will be given as part of the series, but provide no reason why. (A possible explanation comes by way of a one-sentence announcement in the New York Herald on 06/17/67, p. 6: "The Arions have Terrace Garden on Saturday nights for their entertainments.")

Review: New-York Times, 17 June 1867, 5.

At conclusion of a review for Popular Garden concert on 6/16/68.

“The great attendance at Friday’s concert, when the programme was composed solely of classical music must have the effect, too, of strengthening lovers of the most exalted in their confidence that the best and purest entertainment will be appreciably patronized when properly given.”

Review: New-York Daily Tribune, 17 June 1867, 6.

“The concert last night at Terrace Garden ended the first very successful week of these deservedly popular musical entertainments. The programme included several classical pieces, and we think the idea’s a good one, to treat the audience at least once a week, to compositions of a higher order. Among those performed last night were selections from [lists partial program]. On the tender pathos, and the heavenly pence, which are the predominating features of the latter [the Allegretto of Beethoven's Symphony No. 7], it is useless to enlarge for they cannot be expressed in words, though it is certainly no small praise to the orchestra to say that they succeeded in bringing so near to us the divine conceptions of the great master. Among the other compositions, the waltz, ‘Wundertonne,’ and the overture ‘Le Lac des Fées,’ were particularly pleasing. The orchestra performed as creditably as usual, and as far as precision and delicacy of touch are concerned, the absence of Mr. Thomas scarcely made itself felt.”

Review: New-Yorker Musik-Zeitung, 29 June 1867, 744.

The concerts here have been well attended despite the inclement weather at times.
