In the evening I attended one of the numerous concerts given in the charming gardens which are to be found in the environs of Hamburg. We had a performance by three military bands, numbering 120 players; they played separately and unitedly, the balance of tone being in both instances remarkably even and good. Amongst other pieces Wagner’s well-known March in Tannhaiiser was played by the united bands, where, at the passage of quavers in the bass towards the end of the composition, the combined brass instruments produced a stupendous effect. Individually, too, these bands executed both classical and popular music with a care, earnestness, and spirit which showed how much personal artistic interest the different performers took in the delightful work they had in hand.
