The Nash Ensemble, Wigmore Hall’s Chamber Ensemble in Residence, presents a fascinating season of concerts recreating some of the programmes from the famous series of lunchtime recitals that were performed at the National Gallery during the Second World War. Under the visionary leadership of Dame Myra Hess, these concerts were given to enthusiastic audiences throughout the War, even during the Blitz. Each evening concert in the season consists of two complete National Gallery programmes, chosen to represent the taste and skill with which the series was devised and its wide popular appeal.
