Wigmore Hall, London
A day devoted to the US composer’s music underscored its uncompromisingly radicalness and revealed also its tenderness
The Wigmore Hall was the first British concert venue to return to live
music-making after the lockdown last spring, and it has continued to host recitals ever since. Though it has been forced to postpone its concerts for the coming week, it intends to continue, as far as possible, with its planned 2021 season during the latest lockdown, too, all streamed live on YouTube and the hall’s own website. A day devoted to the music of Morton Feldman, performed by members of Apartment House (which is now one of the Wigmore’s associate ensembles), was an unmistakable signal of that serious intent.
