Welcome to the London Philharmonic Orchestra's special Wigmore Hall podcast edition.
This season marks the fourth year that the London Philharmonic Orchestra has promoted a chamber music series at Wigmore Hall. It provides the opportunity for members of the Orchestra to perform in small ensembles, and for audiences to hear programmes of less familiar works, often for unusual instrumental combinations. In this podcast soloists from the Orchestra discuss their love of chamber music and how it complemenets their daily work as members of a symphony orchestra, and music writer Anthony Burton explores the theme of Originals and Transcriptions, the title of the Chamber Contrasts concert on 16 April.
