I love that Carnegie Hall program notes list the date each piece received its first performance in the hall. It offers an interesting glimpse of the history of musical life in New York City, and places the current concert in that context.
This is from last night's Vienna Philharmonic concert program:
Wagner Rienzi Overture
Carnegie premiere: 10 Jun 1891, J. M. Lander conducting an unnamed orchestra during a Columbia College graduation.
Chopin Piano Concerto No. 2
Carnegie premiere: 2 Dec 1893, Walter Damrosch conducting the New York Symphony Orchestra with Richard Burmeister, piano
J. Strauss II Die Fledermaus Overture

J. Strauss II "Wo die Citronen blüh'n!"
