Collection Description

Collection Title
Susi Dell collection: Wigmore Hall programmes (2004-05)
Unique Identifier
Mus. 321 c.1
A collection of handbills and programmes for performances given at the Wigmore Hall, London, between January 2004 and December 2005, held as the fifth of seven boxes comprising the Susi Dell collection.

The majority of the programmes relate to the main sequence/Master Series of Wigmore Hall concerts: these documents include information about the venue, words, programme notes, biographical notes and photographs.

The box also contains handbills (with programme notes and biographical notes) for six Radio 3 Lunchtime Concerts and handbills and programmes for various other performances at the Wigmore Hall.

Many of the programmes carry handwritten annotations, which provide Dell's observations on the performance, including a record of any encores performed. Some are held with press cuttings/printed reviews and/or concert tickets.
