in Pietermaritzburg - August, 1895

from Life and letters of Sir Charles Hallé; being an autobiography (1819-1860) , page 401:

The tickets were only 2s. and Is., but the very fine Town Hall was crowded. We played the Kreutzer Sonata, after an organ solo and one song had been given, and when we had finished a member of the Corporation came forward and said that after the impression just received it would be best to omit the rest of the programme, upon which the public cheered and dispersed.
