WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Award-winning actress Patricia Routledge and international concert pianist Piers Lane tell the extraordinary story of Myra Hess and her famous wartime National Gallery concerts. In Dame Myra's own words (compiled by her great-nephew, composer Nigel Hess) with piano music by Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Schumann and Chopin, we hear how the ?great adventure' of these 1600 lunchtime concerts began, and how it continued while bombs rained down on London. This uplifting story about the healing power of music is directed by Christopher Luscombe.
