Printed music – A valuable commodity’

Mark Orchin

 Music distribution has always been dominated by the ability to print it effectively and economically. This talk will examine the early days of painstaking handwritten parchments for religious music to block printing, litho printing and the evolution of software and laser printing for music. Examples of great performances of the major works will bring this to life, along with how concerts were advertised and promoted in an era when people could not listen to recorded music at home!
