Cancelled: Elias String Quartet; Alice Neary cello
Taneyev and Schubert
In response to advice from Public Health England, Wigmore Hall will be closed from Tuesday 17 March. This event has therefore been cancelled.
- Elias String Quartet
- Alice Neary cello
A leading cellist joins with the Elias to perform two major works from the chamber repertory: the Schubert a well-loved item, but the example by Sergei Taneyev (1856-1915) little known. A master pianist and contrapuntist, its composer was close to and revered by Tchaikovsky; his second string quintet was published in 1904.
