Many of our best immigrant musicians came to America at that period; among whom were the Germania, and, one year later (in 1849), the famous Gungl Orchestra, from Berlin, with the composer at its head. Their venture was a fiasco. The orchestra numbered about twenty-five. They did not play so well as the Germania, consequently did not have the elements of a possible success. About the only souvenir I have of their visit is the hour I spent at the first rehearsal of the new waltz Traum des Oceans—a fine waltz, probably Gungl’s best, which was written while on his voyage to America. Gungl did not give many concerts in Boston, and I think that shortly after his visit he returned to Germany. It is my impression that he did not take many of his men back with him.
