The material includes single concert programmes, concert handbills, brochures for music festivals such as Aldeburgh, Edinburgh, the Holland Festival, the Proms and Salzburg. All the major UK venues are represented with a particular emphasis on the Royal Albert Hall and the Festival Hall. There is a focus on programmes which include mid-20th century works, works by Schoenberg and chamber music of the Classical period. Many of the programmes contain annotations in Keller’s handwriting both in German and English and some contain sketches in all probability done by the artist Milein Cosman, Keller’s wife. In many instances, original typescripts of programme notes and newspaper cuttings of reviews are also included.
