Thomas Ryan in Boston - in the middle of the 1800's

from Recollections of an old musician, pages 126-7:

 

It may be worth recording that we got up a Beethoven centenary birthday commemoration in Bumstead Hall. We had the best of assistance and played the entire septette, op. 20, with the original instruments, the piano trio, op. 97, in B flat (Mr. Lang at the piano), a group of songs, and a string quartette. We did our best It was a sincere offering, and was practically the last concert the Mendelssohn Quintette Club gave in Boston on its own account.
