GANZ (Wilhelm, 1833-1914, Organist, Violinist, Composer and Conductor)

Autograph Letter Signed to John F. Boyes, theatre critic of the Daily News, saying that "Mr Philip Newbury is a native of this Country - but he has been in New Zealand the greater part of his life ... Mr. Avon Saxon is the splendid Baritone ... an American ... he is engaged by Mr Carl Rosa & will make his first appearance in the Toreador at Liverpool next month", 3 sides 8vo, 126 Harley Street, 8th December

Wilhelm Ganz was Jenny Lind's accompanist on a tour of England and Scotland in 1856, having settled permanently in London in 1850. Ganz succeeded to the management of Henry Wylde's 'New Philharmonic Society' in 1879, and renamed it 'Mr Ganz' Orchestral Concerts'. He gave Berlioz' Symphonie Fantastique and Liszt's Dante Symphony for the first time in London in their entirety. He wrote 'Qui Vive', a favourite drawing room galop for four hands, still popular.
