Wigmore Hall stands as a major supporter of contemporary chamber music and song, as commissioner of new works and champion of living composers. The Hall is determined to bring fresh creative energy to the repertoire, not least through its extensive commissioning programme and promotion of world, UK and London premières.
'Our commissioning scheme is already the most extensive in Europe for chamber music. We plan to present up to 20 commissions per season from 2013 and make Wigmore Hall one of the world's foremost centres for contemporary chamber music.'Wigmore Hall Director, John Gilhooly
We are very grateful to all those who have generously supported the Contemporary Music Series, including Art Mentor Foundation Lucerne, The Marchus Trust, and André Hoffmann, president of the Fondation Hoffmann, a Swiss grant-making foundation.
