Charles Halle in Paris - 1839

from Life and letters of Sir Charles Hallé; being an autobiography (1819-1860) , page 68:

This absolute command over the orchestra I had already admired during the preparations for the first production of his 'Romeo and Juliet ' in 1839, which took a long time, but resulted in a magnificent performance, stirring the public to enthusiasm. His own public I mean ; totally distinct from the general one, which did not appreciate or understand his music.
