The Henry Wood Proms – David Cox (1980)


Author: David Cox
Organisation/Affiliation/Publisher: BBC Books
Date: 1980

An illustrated history.

“The story of the Proms, the music of the Proms: this book deals with both in some detail. It covers a period of some eighty-five years – from their inauguration at Queen’s Hall in 1895 to the end of the 1970s – through the changes and chances of two world wars, through various financial crises, and since 1927 in the more or less calm harbour of BBC sponsorship.”
