Apartment House

Wigmore Hall’s contribution to contemporary chamber music and repertoire development goes from strength to strength, as this unmissable programme richly demonstrates.

Apartment House, formed by cellist Anton Lukoszevieze in 1995, became the first contemporary music ensemble to win the coveted Royal Philharmonic Society Award for Chamber Music and Song in 2012.

In this programme for string quartet, piano, percussion and harmonium, the ensemble gives the first performance of Freezywater, a Wigmore Hall commission by Leo Chadburn, known to many as the ‘transgressive pop’ artist Simon Bookish. Works by Lithuanian composer Egidija Medekšaitė, Toronto-based composer and performer Martin Arnold, and Dutch/Brazilian composer Luiz Henrique Yudo add to the concert’s ear-catching mix of world and UK premičres.
