Collection Description

Collection Title
Promenade Concerts (1902, 1904)
Unique Identifier
h.5470.a
Description
A largely complete collection of programmes for the eighth and tenth seasons of the Queen's Hall Promenade Concerts, given by the Queen's Hall Orchestra in 1902 and 1904.

These were two-part concerts of predominantly nineteenth-century orchestral repertory, with accompanied solos for the vocal and instrumental performers listed below, given under the management of Robert Newman and conducted, unless otherwise stated below, by Sir Henry Wood.

The first half of these concerts was the more substantial and was often dedicated to only one or two composers, most notably Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Wagner. The second half of each performance was typically lighter in tone and, unless otherwise stated below, began with a Grand Fantasia. This was usually based on a popular operatic or theatrical work and included solos for all the principal orchestral players, the names of which are listed in full in the programme.

The concerts included a large number of first performances, and the programmes also note those works that are being given for the first time at this series.

All programmes carry words and historical and analytical notes. During the 1902 season, the notes are attributed to Edgar F. Jacques and Percy Pitt, with the majority being signed 'E.F.J.'. During the 1904 season, notes are provided by Alfred Kalish and Percy Pitt.

All programmes carry a considerable number of advertisements, the majority of which are for either musical performances or products.


Season no. 8: 1902
The collection is lacking the programmes for 24 and 31 August, 6, 7, 14, 21, 26 and 28 September, 1, 5, 12, 19 and 26 October and 2 November.

Due to 'unavoidable absence', Henry Wood was replaced by Arthur W. Payne between 29 September and 3 October (when Wood was in Sheffield) and from 13 October to the end of the season.

The concerts were led by Mr T. H. Morrison (23 August–20 September and 13 October to the end of the season), Mr Arthur W. Payne (21–28 September and 4–11 October) and Mr W. H. Reed (29 September–3 October). All concerts were accompanied by Percy Pitt (organ).

The first act of the concerts given on 25 August, 1, 15, 22 and 29 September, 6, 13, 20 and 27 October and 3 November consisted solely of music by Wagner.
