Leading international recital venue specialising in performances of chamber music and song. Originally named the Bechstein Hall, it was built between 1899 and 1901 by C Bechstein Pianofortefabrik, the German piano manufacturer, whose showroom was next door.

The hall is considered to have one of the best acoustics for classical music in Europe and it was refurbished in 2004. Today, the hall promotes 400 concerts a year and broadcasts a weekly concert on BBC Radio 3. The hall also promotes an extensive education programme throughout London and beyond.

Wigmore Hall enjoyed a number of long associations with the great artists of the 20th century including Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Victoria de los Ángeles, Sergey Prokofiev, Shura Cherkassky, Paul Hindemith, Andrés Segovia, Peter Pears, Benjamin Britten and Francis Poulenc.
