Collection Title
Harold Rosenthal collection: Concert Programmes Box 4 (1939-59)
Unique Identifier
Mus. 315 c.2
Description
A miscellaneous selection of handbills, prospectuses and programmes for concerts given at various London venues – predominantly the Royal Albert Hall – between 1939 and 1959, held as the fourth of five boxes within the Harold Rosenthal collection to contain material relevant to concert performances.

This box also includes handbills for performances given at the Dome, Brighton between 1945 and 1946 and a leaflet prospectus for the York Festival, given between 3 and 17 June 1951 as part of the Festival of Britain.

All programmes are held loosely but are mounted on A4 sheets. Held with many of them are press cuttings (including concert reviews) and concert tickets. Where the concert formed part of a larger sequence, the prospectus for that series is often included.

Many of the documents do not carry an indication of the year of the performance: seemingly plausible suggestions have been given in [ ] below, based on the day of the performance and the placement of the programme within the collection.

Where no other information is given below, documentation consists of a handbill or single-sheet programme: some of these contain photographs. Programmes are listed here by venue. In the case of the Royal Albert Hall, the programmes are further ordered by performing organization/series.
