Collection Description

Collection Title
Berlin Concert direction Hermann Wolff (1891-95)
Unique Identifier
A miscellaneous collection of analytical programmes for five Philharmonische Concerte given at the Philharmonie, Berlin between 9 November 1891 and 14 January 1895, directed by Hans von Bülow (1891-1892) and Richard Strauss (1894-1895).

These were two-part concerts, with orchestral and concertante music in the first part and a single symphonic work in the second.

All programmes carry extensive historical and analytical notes, with musical examples, the majority of which are signed H.R. [Heinrich Reimann]. The programmes for the first two concerts provide a list of the orchestral ensemble.

All programmes include a brief announcement (with an outline programme) for the next performance in this series and conclude with a considerable number of musically-related advertisements.

9 November 1891: Joseph Joachim (violin).
14 March 1892: Jettka Finkenstein (vocal), Bernhard Stavenhagen (piano) and Prof. Emanuel Wirth (viola).
19 March 1894: Clotilde Kleeberg (piano).
26 November 1894: Willy Burmester (violin).
