In 2022, Wigmore Hall will once again foreground a range of living composers, as well as champion lesser-known composers throughout history. The hall's composers-in-focus for 2022/23 include Cassandra Miller (b. 1976), Lera Auerbach (b. 1973), Gerald Barry (b. 1952), and Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875–1912).
Additionally, the piano will once again be a focus, with Kirill Gerstein, Boris Giltburg, and Jean-Efflam Bavouzet presenting works by Busoni, Ravel, and Debussy.
"In times of great tumult, art and music provide precious moments of reflection, comfort and consolation," said John Gilhooly, Wigmore Hall's Artistic and Executive Director. "I hope Wigmore Hall continues to be a haven where audiences can experience the beauty and wisdom of great music from the most diverse possible origins."
"I am heartened that our ‘£5 Tickets for Under 35s’ scheme has seen the highest ever take up since the initiative was launched four years ago, bringing many thousands of new, young concertgoers to live performances this season. As we brace ourselves for the economic uncertainties over the coming 12 months, I must thank Friends of Wigmore Hall, a consortium celebrating its 30th birthday, without whose support we cannot do what we do."
