Listen, Enjoy, Remember
These concerts are dedicated to Myra Hess who, against insurmountable odds, arranged concerts in the National Gallery every day of the week throughout the war. Her concerts offered comfort, solace and reprieve to a devastated London. Let music surround and inspire you in the original setting.
With the Endellion String Quartet and David Adams:
- Andrew Watkinson (violin)
- Ralph de Souza (violin)
- David Adams (violin)
- David Waterman (cello)
- Garfield Jackson (viola)
String Quintet in C minor
String Quintet in C Op 29#
These works are masterpieces, although they are rarely heard. This will be a wonderful opportunity to listen and enjoy some of Myra's most loved music.
This day only comes once a year - book now to be a part of history
The Dame Myra Hess Day is generously supported by Miss Dasha Shenkman who also supports The Belle Shenkman Music Programme. Concerts by Royal College of Music students take place throughout the year at the National Gallery in memory of her late mother, Belle Shenkman, who was a great supporter of the Royal College of Music and the arts in general.
