The Nash Ensemble, Wigmore Hall’s chamber Ensemble in Residence, places the music of Franz Schubert at the centre of its annual series. The programmes feature some of the greatest chamber works ever written: the ‘Trout’ Quintet for piano and strings; the String Quintet from the last months of Schubert’s life; the abundantly tuneful Octet for wind and strings; and the two masterly piano trios.

There is also music by his contemporaries, including Weber, Spohr, Rossini, Beethoven and Beethoven’s pupil and friend Ferdinand Ries, and by his forerunners and successors, ranging from Haydn to the Mendelssohns, brother and sister, and Schumann. The programmes are enhanced by a strand of songs by Schubert and other significant figures of his time, featuring renowned guest artists Stéphanie d’Oustrac, Roderick Williams, James Gilchrist and Elizabeth Watts.
