Ziehrer, C.M. Old Vienna, Alt Wien, Tuesday, September 26th, 1893. Grand Concert Given by Hoch- und Deutschmeister Kapelle, (Imperial Austrian Military Band) Under the Leadership of Court Director C. M. Ziehrer. Program, a single sheet leaflet, 8 in x 5 3/8 in. Portrait of the musical director on the front, on the back a list of the sixteen selections played, including “Columbian March,” dedicated to President Grover Cleveland.

A rival to the famous Viennese Strauss brothers, Ziehrer enjoyed so much success on this celebrated American tour, he was dismissed from his position for over-staying his leave. A self-taught composer, Ziehrer wrote 600 marches. There is a pencil annotation on the front, “Sept 28 – 1893 George –”. This concert was an extended event lasting five hours, from “5 P.M. to 10 P.M.” Two intermissions of 30 and 25 minutes spaced three blocks of musical selections, including compositions such as Liszt’s “Second Hungarian Rhapsody” and a Brahms Hungarian dance. In the second block, a violin concerto by “Misko-Hauser,” [sic] Miska Hauser, a pupil of Kreutzer, was played by Mr. Rebner.
