Alexander Mackenzie in Sondershausen - between the 1850's and the 1860's
from A Musician's Narrative , page 28:

To the simple, submissively contented mode of life, the active cult of the most advanced musical tendencies displayed by the fine Court Orchestra–conducted by a man whose devotion to progress had won an exceptional reputation for it–provided a strange contrast.
