Wigmore Hall Recital

No Rating
Wigmore Hall


On Monday 11th July  2011 I performed a recital at Wigmore Hall, London with pianist James Baillieu.  Cellist  Tim Lowe also performed in the concert that was presented by the Worshipful Company of Musicians’ Company Concerts and Maise Lewis Young Artists Fund. Our recital was the final concert of  the Monday Platform series at Wigmore Hall.

 “The Monday Platform is a joint initiative between five organisations whose similar aim is to nuture and support young professional musicians. Whilst providing unique performance opportunities. The Monday Platform also gives Wigmore Hall audiences a chance to hear the very best emerging young artists in a regular monthly series.” Monday Platform series

 Built in 1901 by the piano firm Bechstein, Wigmore Hall is such a magical venue with an inspiring heritage of wonderful musicans that have performed there.  It was a great privilege to perform there once again and such an enjoyable recital! With thanks to WCOM, Maise Lewis Young Artists Fund and the Monday Platform Series.
