Lunchtime with Werner Güra and Christoph Berner


The Wigmore Hall offers a diverse range of Lunchtime recitals next to their Evening Programme, featuring the very finest of musicians. Werner Güra is one such fine German Tenor from Munich, his recordings of Schubert's Winterreise and Die Schoene Müllerin having reached great acclaim with critics. His lunchtime recital was a beautiful selection of solemn Schubert Songs, accompanied by the great artistry and proficiency of Christoph Berner, a young Viennese Pianist. The Recital was recorded live for bbc Radio 3 and is accessible on bbc iplayer.
Lunchtime Recitals are a surprisingly refreshing indulgence in a day. Unfortunately, at Wigmore especially, only the older generations take advantage of such first class music presentations, at cheaper prices and at little expense to ones time (One hour max!) Why don't you consider a lunchtime spent in one of the finest concert venues of the world, and recharge those batteries when work has been just too stressful or the week is looking to be a tough one to manage. Musicians and Music have so much to give (Look how they smile!): Come on in and take! Thank You Herr Güra and Herr Berner.
