In books on music one frequently sees copies of posters from - now - historical concerts, e.g., debut performances of a popular piece.

I wonder whether there is a market for that kind of stuff. I'd like to have some of these posters as decoration for my piano room. I'd be interested in both original posters and copies thereof.

I did not find anything like that at ebay.

Any hints where I might find what I am looking for?

A forum member who briefly posted in early 2003, Zongora, stole concert posters from Carnegie Hall a long time ago. (posters that had used their useful lives up). Check Carnegie Hall archives


archives can be found under the 2nd "essentials" menu near the top

There are some opera posters at www.art.com (under music->classical) which I came across while looking (in vain) for a portrait of Bach.

They're hard to come by. The Chicago Symphony Orchestra sells some during their Radiothon (Symphoniathon). You can check their website early in the year - and see. They've also sold some in their store.

Otherwise, I do see them on E-bay from time-to-time. I saw one for Arthur Rubinstein performing in a city in South America a few months back.

Not easy to come by -- funny because there are a couple of them I'd have paid big bucks to have.
