A few weeks ago, OnStage, the portal for digitised documents on musical performances (so-called performance ephemera, such as concert programmes and announcements), added a new collection. It is a selection of about 2,300 documents (out of 20,000) from La Musicale de la Bibliothèque de Genève, dating from 1861 to 1945. At the same time, the search and presentation software has been completely redesigned, so that all the collections in the portal launched in 2015 now appear in a new splendour.

OnStage currently presents the collections of the Conservatoire de Lausanne, the Conservatoire de Genève, the Association of the friends of ancient music in Basel (FAMB) and La Musicale de la Bibliothèque de Genève. The Geneva library has also published on its blog an entry on the displayed programmes. There will be more to follow. In the meantime, we wish you a pleasant reading! By the way, we have chosen a special event for our image: a Tchaikovsky Festival conducted by the composer on 9 March 1889 at the Grand Théâtre.
