For a while Adila stayed on in Berlin. In November at the Singsacademie she gave without Joachim the big orchestral concert he had planned. It contained the Mozart Concerto in A major, the Beethoven Concerto and Joachim’s exacting Hungarian Variations. The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra was conducted by Ernst Kunwald, the Austrian who was its director that year and for five years after. Adila felt confirmed and encouraged by having passed with honour the test of this fastidious city, but it held no more for her. By this concert she had done all she could do without Joachim, and she returned home. In Berlin, Adila had come across a little booklet which gave names and addresses of principal music societies in Europe. In those days princely and ducal patronages were fading out, and impresarios concerned themselves most with big moneymakers.
