Music series at Marylebone Theatre

Marylebone Theatre

The Marylebone Theatre opened this Autumn, based in the former Rudolf Steiner Hall which is part of Rudolf Steiner House (the home of the Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain which was built by architect Montague Wheeler in the 1920s). The Marylebone Theatre now has an independent existence and alongside its drama programme, there is a fine (and busy) music series.

December's concerts include Stile Antico's A Renaissance Christmas, a sequence of festive music from the Renaissance interspersed with intimate, metaphysical verse by poets such as John Donne and George Herbert, Mark Armstrong and the National Youth Jazz Orchestra in Dizzie Gillespie, saxophonist Jess Gillam and Turkish pianist Zeynep Özsuc in music from Poulenc and Piazzolla to Meredith Monk and Barbara Thompson, the Carducci Quartet in Haydn, Rebecca Clarke and Beethoven's second Razumovsky Quartet, and Ensemble Pro Victoria in a programme built around Britten's A Ceremony of Carols.

January's concerts include composer Ola Gjeilo playing his own music at the piano, Baroque violinist Rachel Podger and singers Jess Dandy and Benjamin Appl.

The theatre seats just over 200, is outside the congestion zone with free street parking after 6.30pm. What's not to like?

Full details from the theatre's website.
