Toselli gives concert

December 22, 1907

Enrico Toselli, the music master, gave his first concert tonight since his marriage to the former Crown Princess of Saxony, reports the New York Times. The hall was "crowded and reached a climax," when Toselli's wife, the Countess of Montignoso, elegantly costumed, entered, taking a conspicuous place among the audience."
At first the reaction from the audience was cold, but "soon the audience began to show appreciation and applauded him liberally." The Countess appeared to be pleased, each time her husband was called out for more applause.
None of the Milan's aristocracy were present for the concert.
