"Vieuxtemps was one of the first European virtuosos to give concerts in the USA. His 1844 tour was only moderately successful, except in New Orleans, where he received an enthusiastic response from the French émigré population... In 1858, however, his second tour (with Thalberg) was extended to a full year as American public taste had grown more receptive to European art music. During the Franco-Prussian War in 1870, he undertook a final tour with Christine Nilsson performing 121 concerts in six months. The pioneering efforts of Vieuxtemps’s early tours laid the groundwork for later artists and ultimately left an indelible mark on American concert life." Edward Eanes in Grove Music Online.
