Wilhelm Ganz in Covent Garden - 10 May, 1855

from Memories of a Musician: Reminiscences of Seventy years of Musical Life, page 25:

In 1855 came the first performance of Il Trovatore. I was asked to teach Madame Neybürde, a prima donna from Dresden, the part of Leonora, which I did. She had a magnificent and powerful soprano voice. Madame Viardot Garcia was superb as Azucena, Signor Tamberlik was the Trovatore, and Signor Graziani (the incomparable baritone) sang the part of the Conte di Luna.
