A remarkable original presentation photograph in original photographer's folder/mount, stamped "Swaine, 146 New Bond St.W. and at Southsea," photograph measuring an impressive 42 x 16 cm. The photograph shows the entire orchestra -all men - assembled in a large dining hall, in their most elegant attire, seated at 6 long tables. Sir Thomas may be see standing along the far right wall, with his eyes closed. We do not know on which occasion this image was taken, but it may include additional musical luminaries, as there seem to be more than a single orchestra's worth of attendees.

All-Beethoven 1889 Program Performed at the Berlin Philharmonie

Original Philharmonie-Concert-Zeitung dated 31 October 1889 for an all-Beethoven program, including the Trio in B-flat major, Piano Sonata in F minor, Op. 57, Sonata for Piano and Violin in A major, the Romances in G and F major for violin, and the Trio in D major, all performed by Heinrich Barth, Heinrich de Ahna, and Robert Hausmann, who had been performing subscription concerts as a trio since 1878. This Beethoven-Abend was part of a new series of 'popular' (cheap) concerts they'd started at the Philharmonie earlier in the same year.  The trio would continue performing together for another 20 years, with de Ahna replaced upon his death in 1892 by Emanuel Wirther.  Most of the booklet is dedicated to advertisements for every sort of local business you can imagine, from chocolatiers to harmonium sellers and lamp oil providers to fan repairmen.  Light wear and surface creases along spine, else fine, 20 pp., 5.5 x 8.75 inches (14 x 22.25 cm.).
