The Wigmore Hall marks its 115th anniversary in grand fashion, - live streaming three concerts this week online. Less than 500 people can fit into the exquisite Arts and Crafts building on Wigmore Street, but now everyone can tune in and catch some of the atmosphere. Having watched last year's experimental broadcast, I think these concerts will be well worth experiencing Enjoy the concerts online HERE on the Wigmore Hall website, or on medici tv (links below)
The concerts :
Schubert 31st May
Elisabeth Leonskaja performing Schubert’s Sonata in B flat major, Cuarteto Casals, and singers Sophie Bevan (soprano), Alice Coote (mezzo-soprano), Allan Clayton (tenor), Henk Neven (baritone) and pianist James Baillieu performing Schubert’s finest Lieder.
