+ a Kanye West collaborator

John Dowland

Caroline Shaw

Béla Bartók

Thomas Adès

Lachrimae Antiquae

Entr'acte

Divertimento

O Albion

Elizabethan composer John Dowland's Lachrimae Antiquae transports us to a world of melancholic beauty and Renaissance dance; a world then refracted and reimagined in Pulitzer prize-winning American composer Caroline Shaw's brilliant Entr'acte. Bartók's electrifying Divertimento for Strings follows before Thomas Adès wistful ode to England, O Albion, closes the concert with quietly-powerful prayer.

The concert will be live streamed on the Wigmore Hall's website [link above] & social media accounts and is FREE to watch across the world.

The concert will also be available on demand for 30 days.
