Although classical concerts are typically the privilege of paying customers – and, by definition, a matter of physical attendance – London's Wigmore Hall has adopted a more altruistic approach in a program that caters to the widest audience possible without charging a dime. The Wigmore Hall live streaming concert on January 28th, 8pm GMT (to inaugurate their 2016-2017 season) will be the first of a new series of streamed concerts for the Wigmore. It will feature the performances of Berlin’s Armida Quartet, Soprano Anna Lucia Richter, Pianist Michael Gees, and Baritone Andrè Schuen, and Pianist Daniel Heide.
