LOESCHHORN, Albert, was born June 27, 1819, in Berlin, where he still resides. He was a pupil of Ludwig Berger, and subsequently studied at the Royal Institute for Church Music in Berlin, where since 1851 he has been teacher of the pianoforte. The title of Royal Professor was conferred upon him in 1868. For many years he carried on concerts of chamber music at Berlin with eminent success. He has done great service for the advancement of classical music, and by his conscientious and thorough discipline as a teacher many of his pupils have also distinguished themselves. He is most widely known through his numerous studies for the pianoforte, although he has published a long list of other worthy compositions.

LONDON MUSICAL SOCIETY, THE. This society was formed in 1878 by Mr. Heathcote Long and other prominent amateurs. Its objects are stated in its second rule—a canon unimpeachable in spirit, if not in grammar—to be 'the practice and performance of the works of composers which are not generally known to the musical public.' Mr. Barnby was appointed musical director, and Mr. Long and Mr. A. Littleton honorary secretaries. An efficient choir was formed, and the first concert was given on June 27, 1879, in St. James's Hall, although, strictly speaking, the occasion was a private one. Goetz's Psalm cxxxvii. was introduced to London at that concert, the solos being sung, as on many subsequent occasions, by efficient amateurs. From 1884 until the last season of the society's existence, Mr. Heathcote Long was alone in the honorary secretaryship. After the season of 1886, Mr. Barnby was succeeded as conductor by Mr. A. C. Mackenzie, who conducted the final concert on May 24, 1887. In the course of that year the society was disbanded, and a sum of £100 was handed over from its funds to the Royal College of Music. During the nine years of its existence the institution performed the following works for the first time in England, besides others which had been heard before, though not frequently. Mr. Stanford's 'Three Holy Children,' for instance, was given for the first time in London, though not for the first time in England, by the London Musical Society:—


Beethoven. Cantata on the death of the Emperor Joseph the Second.
