A Full House

Chris Thile  ©  Cassandra Jenkins
How do you fill a concert hall? This question is asked despairingly of venues across the globe, usually in one those gloomy articles which heralds the death of classical music with barely restrained glee. The Wigmore Hall does not seem to suffer from empty-seat syndrome, however Director John Gilhooly has struck on a smart solution to ensure that this malaise never strikes: diversification. Gilhooly approached one of the world’s most popular and respected jazz pianists, Brad Mehldau, and invited him to ‘curate’ a series of concerts, half of which would feature the maestro himself. Yesterday evening Mehldau was joined by Chris Thile, the man who plucked the mandolin from its twangy bluegrass origins and turned it into a virtuoso instrument at the cutting edge of jazz performance.
