  • Adelaide Burton mezzo-soprano* *Wigmore Hall Debut
  • Hugo Heinz baritone* *Wigmore Hall Debut
  • Maurice Farkoa tenor
  • Willibald Richter piano

This afternoon (or 'morning') concert was given by mezzo-soprano Adelaide Burton, who had already appeared in some events around London including one of the Ballad Concerts at St. James's Hall. She shared the stage with the popular music-hall vocalist Maurice Farkoa and the baritone Hugo Heinz, who had been due to give his Wigmore Hall debut at a concert the previous evening but had had to cancel owing to illness.

German-born pianist Willibald Richter had also appeared in the previous evening's concert and here performed some pieces of his own, as well as a selection of Études-Poésies by Ernst Haberbier, which would not be heard again at Wigmore Hall until Richter returned to play them in 1927. A review in The Times remarked on their excellence but reported that they were ‘hardly audible, such was the loquacity of the audience.’
