Berlioz in London
A concert in June 1848
This page reproduces a contemporary review of Berlioz’s concert on Thursday 29 June 1848, at 2pm – the last he gave on his first visit to London (1847-48). The concert was held at the Hanover Square Rooms.
The text of the review and two accompanying images have been scanned from our own copy of the issue of 8 July 1848 of the Illustrated London News.
