Collection Description

Collection Title
Germany: Musica Viva (1954-92)
Description
A miscellaneous collection of programmes for the annual subscription concerts given under the auspices of Musica Viva (Musikalische Veranstalungen der Bayerischen Staatsoper und des Bayerischen Rundfunks) between 1954 and 1992, held principally at the Herkules-Saal der Residenz, Munich, arranged chronologically and divided into three folders within a single box. The collection also includes prospectuses for the seasons 1965-66, 1966–67, 1967–68 and 1969–70.

All programmes include words and notes (with photographs, illustrations and occasional musical examples) and all prospectuses include a seating plan for the venue. Where the date for a concert for which there is no programme can be ascertained from a prospectus, this is given in square brackets below.

The performances were of choral and orchestral repertory and were given principally by the Chor und Symphonie-Orchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks.

The performance on 4 March 1971 was given by the BBC Symphony Orchestra and was held in the Kongreßsaal des Deutschen Museums.
