Frederick Bridge in St James's Hall - the 1870's

from Westminster Pilgrim; Being a Record of Service in Church, Cathedral and Abbey, College University and Concert Room, with a Few Notes on Sport, page 278:

In my early years in London I was a regular attendant at the concerts of the (now Royal) Philharmonic Society. Cusins was then the conductor, and I always thought that he did his work well. Among my very clear recollections are some hot disputes over the merits of the "Meistersinger" Overture when it was first played.
