As the performance of his Requiem in F minor op.20 in Berlin on 8th February 1862 was a great success, the hitherto unknown Kiel became famous overnight.
As late as 1859 and 1861 he was obliged to arrange private performances of his compositions, to attract attention even in Berlin, but after his Requiem, brought out by Stern's Gesangverein in 1862, had been received with unanimous enthusiasm, and made the round of the musical world, he at once became famous.
