Change of Programme

The programme for the above concert has changed and will now be as below. Please see the below message from Boris Giltburg:

'My thoughts are constantly with the unimaginably brave Ukrainian people, fighting to defend their lives and freedom from Russia’s abominable invasion. As a tiny gesture of support, for as long as the invasion continues (and beyond!), I will be learning works by Ukrainian composers and sharing them on social media, and later in concert. Praying that peace may be restored soon in Ukraine.
For my upcoming recital at the Wigmore, I would like to include Prokofiev’s 8th sonata. Prokofiev was born in modern-day Ukraine, but more importantly, the 8th sonata is one of the most humane and profound war-time musical statements I know of. Even though it was composed during a very different war, it - unfortunately - feels fitting to our time.'
