Georg Henschel in Berlin - at the end of 1862

from Musings & memories of a musician, page 14:

When, in the autumn of 1862, Mr. Wandelt founded a similar school in Berlin he took with him for the opening ceremony, consisting of a public concert, four of his "show" pupils, and we four played in a real, big concert-hall, accompanied by a real big orchestra-- how proud we were!-- Weber's Concertstück in F minor on four pianofortes, I also, with the leader of the orchestra, Mozart's Sonata in C for Pianoforte and Violin.
