FIrst Public Concerts.
Public concerts owe their direct on
uragement to John Banister, who had
on fame by his playing on the violin,
id who succeeded the celebrated Balt
r as leader of Charles 11's band of 24
olins. Pepys, in an entry in his dairy
r February, 1667, tells us the court gos
p of the day-"how the king's viallin
mister is mad that the king hath a
cenclman come to be chief of some
trt of the king's musi(ue."
It was rumored that lie was dismissed
om tho royal service for saying English
olins were better than tho French, a
atoinent which was no doitbt regarded
heretical, opposed as it was to the prc
Liling court view as to the superiority
Franco inl all questions of tasto, and
pecially with regard to imusic.
Banister's concerts at thu close of the
,ar 1672 were advertised in the London
azetto as follows: "These are to givo
)tico that at Mr. John Banister's houso
ow called tho Musick School), over
,ainst the Georgo Tavern in Whito Fry
S, the present Monday will bo inusick
rformned by excellent masters, begin
ng precisely at 4 of tho clock in thu
ternoon, and every afternoon for the
iture precisely at the sanio hour."
Four years later on wo read again:
At tho Academy inl Littl i Lincoln's hn
ields will begii thoe first part of the
arley of Istrinnents, composed by Mr.
An Banister." 'le admxissioin Was at
Lis timeo as a rule a 'hilling, and these
>ncerts seem to have been held pretty
gularly down to with lin t short tiie of
anister's dehath, which took place inl
