Concert at the Beethoven Hall, 1845. Queen Victoria attends a concert in Bonn during a royal visit to Germany. 'The Kunstler Concert, or artists' concert, the last of the musical performances, was announced for nine o'clock yesterday morning. On entering the Beethoven Hall I found it crowded to excess. To the left of the orchestra a stage had, been erected, elegantly fitted up with glasses, carpets, state chairs, &c., for the expected visit of Royalty. Ten o'clock, however, having arrived, and the audience becoming impatient, [Franz] Liszt began his "Festkantate," composed in honour of Beethoven. It was, perhaps, fortunate that it was played once before the Royal visitors had arrived, as it was most imperfectly executed. At half-past-ten o'clock the cheers of the audience, and the flourish from the band, announced the expected guests'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII.
