Collection Description

Collection Title
André Mangeot: Box 4 (1925-30)
A miscellaneous collection of handbills and programmes for chamber music concerts given by the violinist André Mangeot at a range of English, Scottish and European venues between 1925 and 1930, held loosely and arranged within the fourth of six boxes of material comprising the André Mangeot collection.

In the majority of cases, programmes relate to performances at which Mangeot appeared as part of the Music Society String Quartet (1925–26) or the International String Quartet (1930). Of those not given with these ensemble, some featured the Music Society Trio (with Kathleen Long, piano) and a number were given with the cellist Georges Pitsch. From 1927, almost all programmes relate to performances given by the Music Society String Quartet (later the International String Quartet), including a number of concerts given at Italian venues with the Quartetto Poltronieri.

The London programmes include a significant number for The Music Society performances, given at St. John's Institute, Westminster: this was an organization founded by Mangeot in 1920. The English provincial programmes include a number from the Informal Music Society of Cambridge.

The majority of these documents are handbills/single-sheet programmes. These are listed here alphabetically by venue, with English programmes, which are divided into London and provincial, followed by Scottish and then European ones.
