New York Times, December 29, 1907.

The next pair of Boston Symphony concerts will be given in Carnegie Hall on Thursday evening, Jan. 9, and Saturday afternoon, Jan. 11. At the evening concert the soloist will be Mme. Teresa Carreno, and at the afternoon concert Mr. Carl Wendling, concertmaster of the orchestra, who will make his first appearance in New York as a solo violinist. The most important item on Thursday evening's programme will be a symphony in E major by Hermann Bischoff, which has its first performances in America in Boston on Jan. 3 and 4. It is a work of huge dimensions, something in the style of Richard Strauss, and an idea of its technical difficulties may be had from the fact that Dr. Muck and the orchestra have been working at it for the past thre weeks. Mme. Carreno will play MacDowell's concerto in D minor, and the other number on the evening programme will be Dvorak's "Carnival" overture. For Saturday afternoon the programme will be Händel's concerto for two wind choirs and string orchestra, Mozart's concerto for violin in A major, no. 5, and Hermann Götz's symphony in F major, no. 9.
