    PUBLICATION NEWS: ARCHIVES DU CONCERT

    A striking new edition is being made to the Actes Sud / Palazzetto Bru Zane publishing collection. The new work ranges over a rediscovered poster from the Concert Spirituel; a collection of the forerunners of today’s concert programmes, called “Paroles du concert” and dating from the second half of the eighteenth century; archival records of the “Droit des Pauvres”, a tax imposed on performances, designed for the amelioration of the condition of the poor, and instituted under the French Revolution… Having investigated and analysed these previously little-known documents. Beverly Wilcox, Florence Doé de Maindreville, Patrick Taïeb and Étienne Jardin are bringing forward, with this work, new insights into the history of the concert world in France between 1750 and 1850.
