Wilhelm Ganz in Queen's Hall - the 1900's
Very few years later public interest was at last aroused by Sir Henry Wood's and Mr. Thomas Beecham's performances of Strauss's works at the Queen's Hall, and at the first performance of Ein Heldenleben, which I attended, the hall was packed. A young Strauss enthusiast, who was sitting next to me, said, " I was in the Rocky Mountains when I read that Heldenleben was to be given in London, so I packed up and came straight back."
