Wigmore Hall was built in 1901 by the German piano firm Bechstein next to its showrooms on Wigmore Street. The Hall was intended to provide a venue both grandly impressive and yet intimate enough for recitals. It has always been important for artists giving their London debuts, but it is also a cherished venue for major international artists and their capacity audiences, and now presents 400 concerts a year.
