The Wigmore Soloists made its debut, both as an ensemble and as newly-appointed Wigmore Associate Ensemble, to an empty Wigmore Hall auditorium in January. The group returns now to a live audience with two Hungarian and one German composer. Bartók’s 1938 Contrasts is based on Hungarian and Romanian dance melodies; Reinecke’s Trio was written in 1887 for a ‘striking if little heard combination’ (The Chamber Music Journal); and Dohnányi’s Op. 37 finale contains influences from jazz and ragtime.

  • Béla Bartók (1881-1945)
      • Contrasts for violin, clarinet and piano BB116
  • Carl Reinecke (1824-1910)
      • Trio in A minor for clarinet, horn and piano Op. 188
  • Ernő Dohnányi (1877-1960)
      • Sextet in C Op. 37
