Admission: One Shilling
Dame Patricia Routledge as Dame Myra Hess, Piers Lane (piano)
Admission One Shilling, devised by Dame Myra Hess’s composer great-nephew Nigel Hess, tells the story, in words, music and images, of the series of morale-boosting lunchtime concerts that Dame Myra organised at the National Gallery during the Second World War. It draws on press interviews she gave and comments she made during BBC broadcasts. She is represented by the much loved Patricia Routledge. The pianist Piers Lane performs music Myra Hess played in these concerts, by Schubert, Brahms, Schumann, Chopin, Beethoven and Bach – including her celebrated transcription of Jesu, joy of man’s desiring.
