Review: New York Herald, 08 July 1866, 4.

“The Saturday concerts at the Lion Brewery Park during this season thus far have been very successful.  They are always attended by an attentive and select audience, representing the musical portion of the New York public. The Lion Park yesterday was full of visitors, notwithstanding the excessive heat. The orchestral performances were conducted by Mr. Bergmann, and the programme on this occasion embraced selections of the choicest compositions of Flotow, Strauss, Ricci, Rossini, Halevy, Meyerbeer and others. The programme also included a march of Mr. W. Candidus, a well known composer of this city, a composition which has gained a good deal of popularity among the musicians of this beknighted town. The programme further comprised selections from Crispino (Ricci); the Siege of Corinth (Rossini); a romance for French horn and flute of Halevy, and the Belvidere galop of Mr. F. Reitzel, of this city. In Part Third the following compositions were rendered with the usual perfection. The ‘Overture and orgie [sic] from the Huguenots’ (Meyerbeer); the ‘Pruckuch Polka’ (Herzog); selections from the Africaine and the ‘Artist’s Quadrille’ of Strauss. The ‘Pruckuch Polka’ is one of the most curious pieces in the polka line, and as it was rendered in quite a perfect style it had to be encored. The composer (Herzog), formerly of Hamburg, is now residing in some part of this country. In Part Second the ‘Belvidere Galop’ formed an essential part of the programme. It is the work of a composer of this city, and one of the most favorite compositions in this line. It was rendered with great perfection. The Lion Brewery concerts are some of the most appropriate musical enterprises during the hot season.”
