Relaxed Concert: Zoë Martlew

Cassadó, Vivaldi, Martlew and more


  • Zoë Martlew cello
  • Finnegan Downie Dear piano

Come and join us at Wigmore Hall for a thrilling, whistle-stop musical journey around the world! Dynamic cellist and composer Zoë Martlew, and pianist and conductor Finnegan Downie Dear will guide you through the Brazilian rainforest to a French salon, an Argentinian Tango bar via the Arabian desert and beyond… Expect drama, glitter, the odd balloon and some truly wonderful music.

Our relaxed concerts are open to everyone and are specifically designed to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people with Autism Spectrum Disorders, sensory and communication disorders, and learning disabilities.

There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement, and house lights will remain up. Audience members are able to move in and out of the auditorium as they need to, and there is a designated quiet area.
