Description
Gramophone called Welsh soprano Margaret Price "a unique singer: nobody could mistake that purity of tone or the way she has of moving from note to note, as though each is a separate gem in a row of pearls." How better to remember the late and much-missed Dame Margaret than to revisit this feted 1987 recital? Her debut at Wigmore, it celebrated her 25 years on stage and was described by The Guardian's critic as "one of the most thrilling performances I have ever seen." In the words of opera critic Mike Smith, Price had a voice "as rich and luxurious as the plushest velvet theatre curtains that inevitably fell at the close of a spellbinding performance…. [She had] a career that spanned the decades … across the world's great houses, with success as far afield as sunny San Francisco and magnetic Munich, the city that she made her home and honoured her with the title Bayerische Kammersängerin."

Winner of Gramophone's 2011 Label of the Year award (and the first label dedicated to live recordings to win the prestigious accolade), the "Wigmore Hall Live" recording series continues to be "a source of sound documents to cherish" (BBC Music). This venue holds a unique place in London musical life and is an essential platform for the world's most sought-after soloists and chamber musicians. Every week a concert is broadcast on radio and the Internet, but with the launching of this recording label, Wigmore's great performances can be a revelation and a source of enduring pleasure to music lovers worldwide.
