in Manchester - 1864

from Life and letters of Sir Charles Hallé; being an autobiography (1819-1860) , page 144:

Seven years ago he [Sir Charles Halle] led such an orchestra, and drew from the keys of his pianoforte such harmonies and melodies as beforetime were reserved exclusively for the wealthy. In the glass building prepared for the exhibition of Art Treasures we first listened to him, and the strains of that delicious music floating through the building became so associated with all that is most beautiful in painting and sculpture, that it is almost impossible to separate them.
