Wigmore Hall opened in 1901 as the Bechstein Hall. It was built by a a C. Bechstein Pianoforefabrik, a German piano manufacturer that had it's showroom right next door. During the First World War the hall was confiscated as enemy property due to it's German ownership. It was sold in an auction and re-opened in 1917 as Wigmore Hall.

The hall, which was recently and extensively refurbished in 2004 is noted for having near perfect acoustics for classical music.

Rated 4.8 out of 5Wigmore Hall Star Rating

5 Star Rating For context, this review is for the concert hall, which is a beautiful and intimate venue. The artist I saw there was amazing. Great to see and lovely to hear. As expected, acoustics are mesmerising and upon leaving, I felt so relaxed and 'zen'. Will definitely return without a doubt. Glad I discovered this place, I've been missing out.

5 Star Rating An acoustically perfect concert hall for chamber music. Many of the world's best performers of Western classical music appear here. The Sunday morning concerts are just an hour long and very reasonably priced, attract a faithful audience of all ages and are a great way to become familiar with standard and lesser-known works.

5 Star Rating Probably the best chamber music hall in the world, always packed with the most talented performers. It’s an absolute treat to have it continuously delivering outstanding music in an affordable fashion. If in doubt, pay a visit. A must for London.

5 Star Rating I enjoyed a fantastic concert performed by students from the String Department of The Royal College of Music, and was incredibly impressed by their technical brilliance and musicianship. The concert line-up in the upcoming season brochure is outstanding in terms of wonderful musicians and repertoire. I wouldn't miss the opportunity to attend more concerts whenever visiting London.
