The Wigmore Hall’s 2017/18 season has been announced, and in addition to a really splendid variety of chamber music and performers, piano fans can look forward to a fantastic line up of pianists including Sir Andras Schiff, Peter Donohoe, Imogen Cooper, Steven Osborne and Angela Hewitt, as well as young rising stars Daniil Trifonov and Pavel Kolesnikov, amongst many others. 

Sadly, there are only four women pianists in this impressive roster.
