Best known for piano, song and instrumental recitals, it was purpose built in 1901 by the German piano firm Bechstein, beside its showrooms on Wigmore Street, to provide London with a grand yet intimate chamber music venue. Originally called Bechstein Hall, it was sold to Debenhams at a knock-down price in 1916 after the First World War hostilities made it almost impossible for Bechstein to continue.
Today the hall hosts around 400 concerts a year, some of them broadcast in a weekly slot on BBC Radio 3. It even has its own record label, Wigmore Hall Live.
