Nash Ensemble at Wigmore Hall: 'Nash Inventions'

The Nash Ensemble, live from Wigmore Hall in London, in music by Stravinsky, Maxwell Davies, Goehr, Birtwistle and Casken. With baritones Simon Wallfisch and Peter Tregear.

Wigmore Hall's Chamber Ensemble in residence, the Nash Ensemble, premiere Alexander Goehr's latest chamber work, scored for an intriguingly mixed quintet, alongside Sir Harrison Birtwistle's single-movement Trio, and the late Sir Peter Maxwell Davies's String Quintet, first performed as part of the Ensemble's 50th anniversary celebrations. The programme is crowned by John Casken's folk-inspired Quintet.
