Collection Description

Collection Title
André Mangeot: Box 3 (1904-24)
A miscellaneous collection of handbills and programmes for performances given by the violinist André Mangeot (1883–1970) at various European venues – the majority in England – between 1904 and 1924, held loosely and arranged chronologically over two folders (1904–19 and 1920–24) within the third of six boxes of programmes contained in the André Mangeot collection.

The majority of the performances are solo recitals/chamber music performances. From 1920, there are a large number of programmes for performances given at St. John's Institute, Tufton Road, Westminster by The Music Society (a chamber music organization established by Mangeot in 1920).

The majority of the documents are handbills/single-sheet programmes, many with photographs. They are listed here alphabetically by venue and divided as follows:

1. London venues
2. English provincial venues
3. Scottish venues
4. European venues
5. Unknown venues

In addition to the programmes listed below, the collection also includes 15 handbills for which no venue is given. Those for 11 November 1917, 7 February 1918, 1 June 1919, 19 March and 3 December 1922, 30 September 1923 and 2 November 1924 are for Organ Recitals. One is undated and the remainder relate to concers on 22 April 1909, 16 May 1917, 12 February 1918, 9 July 1921 and 19 January, [no date] May and 24 June 1924.
