50 Broadside Posters for the August 26, 1978 Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra Concert

All are Fine, each measuring 7” x 14”. Arthur Fiedler was one of the most popular conductors of the 20th century. Born in Boston in 1894, he studied in his teens under the virtuoso Willy Hess in Berlin. He returned to the U.S. and began his Esplanade Concerts along the banks of the Charles River; these concerts contained an eclectic mix of classical and popular music from Gershwin to the Beatles. Fiedler was appointed in 1930 to the position of conductor of the Boston Pops Orchestra, a position he held for more than 50 years, making the Boston Pops the best-known orchestra in the United States. Fiedler’s records sold more than 50 million copies, thanks in part to the PBS program “Evening at the Pops,” launched in 1969. On July 10, 1979, Fiedler died in Brookline, MA. This poster represents one of Fiedler’s final concerts, less than a year before his death. Item #310
