Joseph Darby (Music Department) presented the paper “The Early Marketing of Handel’s Twelve Grand Concertos” at the 31st Annual Conference of the College Music Society’s Northeast Region, held March 19-20 at the University of Vermont. An examination of London newspapers in 1739-40 reveals that the efforts to market G.F. Handel’s Twelve Grand Concertos were substantially greater than existing documentary studies suggest. These advertisements – subscription proposals, concert ads, publication announcements, and retail sales ads – provide insight into the early marketing, publication, performance, and reception of the concertos. These sources also shed light on the relationship of Handel’s opus 6 to a wider practice of issuing large instrumental works by subscription in eighteenth-century Britain.
