Concert Life in 19th-Century London
Database and Research Project

Pilot Demonstration

In 2001 we were invited to produce a dataset to celebrate the centenary of the Wigmore Hall, London, by capturing data from a typical concert season in its first decade, and exploring the possibilities for electronic interrogation. We chose the 1906-07 season and treated it as a pilot for developing the database’s search mechanisms.
