The second appearance at Wigmore Hall of the Wessely String Quartet, whose debut in October saw them described in The Times as displaying emotional intelligence in their approach to Brahms, and ‘fire and spirit’ in the playing of a piece by Dvořák. In this evening concert the quartet, formed by the Austrian violinist Hans Wessely, performed a typical programme of three string quartets, including the first performance at Wigmore Hall of Smetana's confessional String Quartet No. 1 in E minor 'From my life'.
