Orchestre des concerts Lamoureux



  • Existence: 1881


From the late 19th century, however, increasing numbers of bourgeois listeners were drawn to concerts, replacing the wealthy élite as the largest component of the Parsian musical public. Concert series conducted by ... Lamoureux (founded 1881) ... eventually built huge audiences of two to three thousand people who came Sunday after Sunday for 24 weeks per season. ... [T]he previously competitive Concerts Lamoureux and Concerts Colonne merged during [World War I]. ... [F]rom 1949 to 1963 there was a further decline in the musical public. While the Société des Concerts du Conservatoire maintained high attendance at its concerts, the Concerts Pasdeloup often played to a hall two-thirds full, Colonne to somewhat less, and Lamoureux to even fewer listeners.
