(p.29) CHAPTER 2 De Meyer in the South and Midwest
From Paris to Peoria

R. Allen Lott

Oxford University Press

De Meyer made the usual inland tour of visiting performers, following the coastline to Charleston, then to New Orleans and Mobile, then up the Mississippi and Ohio rivers. He traveled with his own Erard grand pianos, and with his brother-in-law made all arrangements for the concerts as they appeared in each city. His concerts were generally well attended, and many of those in the audience seemed to be attracted out of curiosity. Although De Meyer's music may be seen today as catering to the masses, many of the reviews suggest that his works were beyond the comprehension of the musical taste of the general public.
