Collection Description

Collection Title
Edinburgh Concert Society (1948-1949)
A collection of 12 programmes from the Edinburgh Concert Society, 1948-1949. The programmes represent the first to twelfth concerts in the season, from October to March. The programmes are from concerts that took place at the Usher Hall, Edinburgh. The concerts occurred on Fridays, and are listed as being “fortnightly”. Half the programmes are from recitals – chiefly song or piano recitals – and the other half are from orchestral concerts. Two thirds of the orchestral concerts were given by the Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Maurice Miles. There are also programmes from a single concert given by the Hallé Orchestra (conducted by John Barbirolli) and the Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (conducted by George Weldon). The programmes contain analytical programme notes as well as musical examples. There are autographs by Francis Poulenc and Pierre Bernac, in the programme from their recital.

The programmes are arranged chronologically.
