Thomas’ Music Collection of Autographs
Thomas’ Music Collection of Autographs will be offered as part of our Collectables Auction on 13 December. The 96-year-old Melbourne institution, Thomas’ Music, sadly closed its doors for the final time earlier this year. For generations, it was a much-loved destination for classical music performers, fans and enthusiasts alike. A memorable feature of the shop was the back wall of signed ceiling tiles, bearing signatures and dedications from hundreds of international and local artists, all of whom made sure to stop in at Thomas’ while on tour.
The Collection features celebrated figures, such as sopranos Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Dame Joan Sutherland, Elisabeth Schwartzkopf, Victoria de Los Angeles, conductors Arthur Fiedler and Neville Marriner, alongside more contemporary artists including Elvis Costello, Nana Mouskouri, Adam Ant, and John Clarke. Those with fond memories of Thomas’ will also recognise the gramophone by His Master’s Voice, which held a prime position in the Bourke Street store.
