PITTSBURGH MUSIC - ARCHIVAL MATERIAL

 

ADOLPH M. FOERSTER (1854 - 1927)

Scrapbook, Volume 6

Location: Oliver Room, Pittsburgh Music Archives, qr 780 S43, Volume 6

A massive collection of printed musical programs beginning in 1888 as performed in cities such as Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dayton, Detroit, Lafayette, Leavenworth, Milwaukee, New York, Pittsburgh. This is a representative listing and is not meant to be complete or comprehensive.

It is unclear if Foerster attended all of these musical events, or if some programs were perhaps sent to him by colleagues and/or his former students, especially when his compositions were performed. But it gives an overview of musical activity by various groups and individuals and repertoire being performed during the late 19th century.
