1773. Le Blanc: Manuel de l'Amateur d'Estampes (Paris, 1854-90) 2. The "Concert Spirituel," a concert series founded in Paris in 1725, "was at the centre of Paris';s non-operatic musical life until the founding of the Concert des Amateurs (1769). The last director, Bertheaume, abandoned the enterprise after the 13 May 1790 performance. Concerts spirituels, not connected to the original series but consisting of programmes on the Parisian model, or simply of sacred music, had been given in Vienna and other European centres beginning in the late 18th century; in Paris, theatre orchestras and concert societies began giving them during the French Revolution. They continued during periods of royalism and eventually became part of the tradition of the Société des Concerts du Conservatoire." Eric Bloom and Beverly Wilcox in Grove Music Online.. Sheet size ca. 262 x 206 mm., plate size ca. 257 x 200 mm. Signed in the plate. A fine, bright impression on laid paper with narrow margins. Lightly browned; a few small spots of light foxing; small hole to blank lower left corner; hinged at upper margin of verso.
