Collection Description

Collection Title
BBC Concerts (1950-1951)
A collection of 17 programmes form concerts organised by the BBC, from 1950 to 1951. Some programmes contain analytical programme notes, which occasionally use musical examples.

All of the programmes are from concerts given by the BBC Symphony Orchestra. The majority of programmes are from the Royal Albert Hall, which were largely “BBC Symphony Concerts”: the remainder include concerts organised by the Royal Philharmonic Society. The collection also contains five programmes from the “Festival of Britain” in 1951, which are split between Royal Albert Hall (2) and Royal Festival Hall (3). Groups which occasionally joined the BBC Symphony Orchestra in performances include the BBC Chorus, BBC Choral Society and BBC Women’s Chorus.

The programmes are arranged by concert series/organising body – BBCSO, RPS Concerts, Festival of Britain – then chronologically.
