A strange request, I know, but here goes. Does anyone know of an almanac or calendar of some sort that will show me a year-by-year list of famous, significant music premieres?
In particular I’m trying to find a nifty premiere in London of 1892, and even more ideally in the autumn. So far the best ones I could find are I Pagliacci, which was way earlier in the year, and Lady Windemere’s Fan, which is less than ideal because I really prefer a music performance. I know Mahler had a series of performances in the summer (but as conductor, not composer), which is significant because it was his only UK appearance.
It’s for a novel, in case you’re wondering. I’m cool with doing the research, I just wondered if perhaps someone has access to a Grove’s or some other tome / resource that might be of faster assistance.
