Collection Description

Collection Title
Scottish provinces: Edinburgh: Waverley Market (1878)
One programme from two concerts given in Waverley Market. The concerts were given as part of the series "Edinburgh Promenade Concerts".

The programme is from two concerts given on December 7. Though the concert programme does not have the year of the concerts printed on the programme, both a pencil annotation on the back-page of the programme and an item of correspondence inserted into the programme indicate that the concerts were given in 1878.

The concerts are described as "Two Grand Concerts", and included solo vocal and instrumental items for voice, double bass items and piano. The concerts included the following soloists: Carlotta Patti (vocalist); Emma Beasley (vocalist); Signor Urio (vocalist); Signor Monari Rocca (vocalist); Signor Bottesini (double bass); Tito Mattei (piano). The concert was conducted by Tito Mattei and Emanuel Nelson.
