Saint-Saens in Heidelberg - late 19th Century

from Musical Memories, page 122:

The festival lasted four days and there were six concerts - four with the orchestra and a chorus. They gave the oratorio Christus, an enormous work which takes up all the time allowed for one concert; the Dante and Faust symphonies, and the symphonic poems Ce qu'on entend sur la montagne and Tasso, to mention only the most important works.
