Collection Description

Collection Title
Priaulx Rainier Collection (1930-1990)
Description
A collection of programmes from the composer Priaulx Rainier (1903-1986), from 1930 to 1990. Priaulx Rainier was born and was educated in South Africa, before studying at the Royal Academy of Music, London, in 1920.

The collection is described in detail, and partly at item level through the A2A catalogue http://www.a2a.org.uk.

The majority of programmes are listed as part of "Concert Programmes - ref. IPR/5/1". These programmes are from performances of Rainier's works, from 1930 to 1990. The programmes are largely from the United Kingdom, including a number from London. There are also programmes from concerts which took place in South Africa, the United States and Germany.

There are also programmes in other parts of the collection. There are programmes from two concerts (1933-1937) given by the cellist Aubrey Rainier, cousin of the composer. There are also programmes included as part of an undated collection of performance ephemera.
