Where can I find old concert programmes?
« on: May 22, 2007, 09:58:13 AM »
Are there any websites where I can find old concert programmes? By old, I mean VERY old. End of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century.
Thank you.

I have bought a handful -- maybe two or three -- on eBay, and been very pleased with what I received.  But I wouldn't suggest it as a "regular" source.

And, once there, simply navigate via composer or era .........
