    Public

    From the mid-nineteenth century international exhibitions held in Europe, North America and Australia were an immensely popular way of promoting new commercial products. Described variously as colonial, intercolonical, national, international, industrial or centennial, these exhibitions encompassed various musical programs to accompany the exhibition program and show off goods manufactured or imported into our colonies.

    Music for exhibitions gives us a fascinating glimpse of life in the nineteenth century. Curated by National Library of Australia staff.

    Orchestra and organ Musical performances have proved very attractive features of the Garden Palace, despite the defective acoustic properties of the building.   They are generally given on the orchestra, pianoforte recitals predominating.  The organ, built by Messrs. Gray and Davison, of London, was purchased by Sir Daniel Cooper, Bt., at a cost of D600, for the exhibition.  Our view shows the orchestra, as arranged for the inaugural performance, under the direction of Signor Giorza, on September 17, 1879.  The bust in front of the orchestra is that of Sir Hercules Robinson, the former governor of New South Wales / edited by John Plummer ; Richards & Co
