About Admission: One Shilling

"Multi-award-winning actress Dame Patricia Routledge and international concert pianist Piers Lane tell the extraordinary story of Myra Hess and her famous wartime National Gallery concerts. Through spoken word interspersed with piano music by Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Schumann and Chopin, hear how the ‘great adventure’ of these lunchtime concerts began, and how they continued while bombs rained down on London.

Catch this acclaimed production in these one-off performances at Bishopsgate Institute’s historic Great Hall and take the rare opportunity to hear this stunning music performed on Hess's favoured 1976 Model D Steinway Grand pianoforte.
