Schumann: Under the Influence Young American pianist Jonathan Biss has produced this series of concerts at Wigmore Hall that will pay homage to the legacy of Robert Schumann and his music. Regarded by some as a happy accident of history, Schumanns music is seen to be uniquely original and yet a crucial link in a chain of composers across centuries. This series will look into that progression and will feature the work of four composers who could not have existed without the influence of Schumann.

 

About Wigmore Hall

Built by the Bechstein piano company in 1901, this grandiose concert hall is regarded by many as London's best venue for chamber and solo performances. Wigmore Hall's renaissance materials - alabaster and marble - and the rectangular shape have given it a clear, clean acoustic that is a world away from the boom of the great domed concert halls.
