19th-century Romanticism offered German music new relationships with literature, fine art and nature, with an emphasis on drama and first-person expressivity, all couched in language and forms that broke free of earlier precedents. Wigmore Hall’s Chamber Ensemble in residence presents a season-long exploration of the German repertoire of the era, from Beethoven and Weber, via Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms and Wagner to Max Bruch and Richard Strauss. The interest and variety of the Ensemble’s programmes is enhanced by the collaboration of a cohort of leading singers of our time.
