London's Wigmore Hall announced its re-opening to audiences from September 13, Gramophone reports.

80 concerts at the iconic chamber music venue are planned over a seven-week series running until November 1, beginning with German baritone Christian Gerhaher and pianist Gerold Huber, and continuing with artists including pianists Igor Levit and Sir Andras Schiff, soprano Sabine Devieilhe, harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani, mezzo-soprano Marianne Crebassa, tenor Gerald Finley, violinists Julia Fischer and Leonidas Kavakos, and the ensembles the Arditti Quartet, the Nash Ensemble and Apartment House.

At least 60 of these will be open to the public, though in order to comply with ongoing Covid-19 rules, the numbers of attendees will be restricted to 56 per concert (10 percent of the hall's capacity), and performances will last 60 -90 minutes with no interval. There will be temperature checks, staggered entrance times, available hand sanitiser and no printed programs. All concerts will be live-streamed in high-definition on the Wigmore Hall website.
