Vaughan Williams, Philip Venables and Dohnányi

Wigmore Hall, London
36 Wigmore St, London W1
United Kingdom


Wigmore Hall’s mighty tally of world premières grows with the appearance of a specially commissioned work by Endymion’s artistic director, Philip Venables.

The Chester-born composer’s music, praised for its ‘delicately spun melodies’ and ‘gritty, soulful’ character, has been championed worldwide by Endymion. His Sextet takes its place in an absorbing programme, complete with Vaughan Williams’s early Quintet for clarinet, horn, violin, cello and piano, written in 1898 and first performed three years later.

Ralph Vaughan Williams : Quintet in D
Philip Venables : Sextet (commissioned by Wigmore Hall)
E Dohnanyi : Sextet in C Op. 37
