Our Learning Festival in 2019/20 invites you to explore the many different ways we create, perform, listen to and respond to music. We delve into the concept of musical conversation, a notion at the heart of chamber music, and invite you, your ears and your voices to take part.
We mark 250 years since the birth of one of the world’s most celebrated composers, Ludwig van Beethoven, whose own modes of musical conversation shifted when he began to lose his hearing. Yet he continued to make music, and went on to compose some of the greatest works he would ever create.
Monday 10 – Saturday 22 February
Explore the sounds of Wigmore Hall and create your own musical conversations on a miniature model of the stage...
This newly commissioned interactive sound installation by artist and composer Gawain Hewitt invites you to compose duets using sounds of Wigmore Hall performers and participants past and present.
A part of our Beethoven 250 celebrations and Musical Conversations festival, the installation includes vibrating transducers, enabling D/deaf and hearing participants to explore pieces through touch and vibration.
