Laura Samuel violin
Timothy Ridout viola
Kristina Blaumane cello

Tonight’s concert is the debut for brand new ensemble the Wigmore Soloists. Led by Isabelle van Keulen and Michael Collins, the pair is joined by a roster of top musicians for Schubert’s inimitable 1824 Octet. The work was conceived using Beethoven’s Opus 20 Septet as a model, adding a second violin to the forces, and is the epitome of the divertimento in its variety and tunefulness.
