We and the building love music. The musicians who play here love the intimacy and the acoustic, which responds well to our 1897 Bechstein grand piano, to the wide range of guest instruments, lute, classical guitar, cello, clarinet, oboe, harp, saxophone and even classical harmonica and to all types of music from early music to romantic to modern masters, from Bach, through Prokofiev to Arvo Pärt.
There is understated, live “dinner” music, Thursday to Saturday evenings, classical, music from the great shows and jazz, piano, harp, or classical guitar; jazz piano on Thursdays, jazz or classical on Fridays, classical piano, guitar or harp on Saturdays.
On the first Sunday of the month we hold a classical recital, drawing on young musicians who are already performing as soloists and in chamber groups at international venues such as the Wigmore and Carnegie Halls.
These recitals are seated, theatre style around the grand piano, with wine in the interval and candlelight supper available afterwards. The musicians love the salon scale of performance, the intimate performing relationship with the audience and the opportunity to chat to the guests after the concert.
The programme for the rest of the year is taking shape with exciting performances over the coming months.
Sunday the 4th May will feature Thai pianist Poom Prommachart playing Mozart, Chopin and Shostakovich.
Sunday the 1st June sees the return of acclaimed cuban guitarist Ahmed Dickenson Cardenas playing Eduardo Martin.
We were a venue again for the London Jazz Festival 2013 and on Sunday evening, 24 November, hosted a concert of his own music, The Nightingale and the Rose, by composer and pianist, Will Butterworth with his quartet, including Seb Pipe on alto saxophone.
