DIRECTOR’S CHOICE


Admission: One Shilling Piano


In an extraordinary musical and theatrical collaboration actress Patricia Routledge and pianist Piers Lane celebrate the life of Dame Myra Hess – a remarkable woman who initiated, directed and performed in a number of legendary concerts at the National Gallery during the Second World War. Her concerts provided a cultural oasis for thousands who remained in London during the war years.


The words are taken from letters, books and interviews given by Dame Myra, interspersed with short piano pieces by Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Beethoven and Bach. Not only does Patricia Routledge strongly resemble Hess, but her chemistry with pianist Piers Lane, developed over many years of friendship, makes their performance a delight.
