A series of concerts devoted entirely to the compositions of Johannes Brahms, and performed by the Joachim Quartet, assisted by Richard Mühlfeld and others. “The scheme, undertaken for the first time in this or any other country, will allow of the performance of the whole of Brahms’s Chamber Music Works written for more than two instruments, and, in addition, of two of the Violin Sonatas, the two Violoncello Sonatas, and the Two Sets of ‘Liebeslieder Waltzes.’” […] “The Bust of Johannes Brahms exhibited in the vestibule is a replica of that of the Brahms Monument at Meiningen, by Adolf Hildebrand.”

Venue Info: 1901: built as the Bechstein Hall; capacity: 550. 1916: everything auctioned off; 1917: reopened as the Wigmore Hall. Source: London Encyclopaedia
