Wigmore Hall goes into TV

Wigmore Hall
Following hot on the heels of the televisation on Sky Arts of the Rosenblatt Recitals from the Wigmore Hall, Wigmore Hall itself has announced a collaboration with Sky Arts. From Monday 12 August a series of 7 recitals from Wigmore Hall will be broadcast on Sky Arts, mixing chamber music, choral music, vocal recitals and early music. The programmes were recorded live in HD, and each is being broadcast more than once. They are of an hour's duration, rather than full concert length, and each includes an interview with the artists. 

The series opens on 12 August with pianist Marc-Andre Hamelin in Brahms, then Ralph Kirshbaum and the Takacs Quartet in Schubert's String Quintet in C, D956 (19/8/2013), Sarah Connolly and Malcolm Martineau in French song (26/8/2013), Iestyn Davies, Thomas Dunford (lute), Jonathan Manson (viol) in Johnson and Dowland (2/9/2013), Takacs Quartet in Beethoven's String Quartet in C sharp minor Op. 131 (8/9/2013) and Stile Antico with Fretwork in music by Byrd for the Feast of Corpus Christi (16/9/2013). The series ends on 23 September with a great treat, Ailish Tynan, Sarah Connolly, Mark Padmore, Ben Johnson, Robin Tritschler, Christopher Maltman, Benjamin Appl and Graham Johnson in a selection of Schubert solo and ensemble songs.
