About Stephen Hose

Join Lauderdale House's resident pianist Stephen Hose for the fifth in our series of Lockdown Lauderdale Free Lunchtime Concerts online. 

Stephen will perform a 45 minute repertoire of classical music from the Long Gallery. 

The concert will go live at 1.15pm on Tuesday 16th March, and will be immediately available to view here via Youtube:

Our regular free lunchtime concerts used to run twice a month in the Long Gallery and offered a small oasis of calm and creativity for many people. Over the first lockdown, Stephen performed once a month for the concert crowd, and we were lucky enough to be able to offer a fourth in-person event just before the autumn.

Now, he's back, with a new programme :

  • Joseph Haydn: Sonata in No.12 in G, slow movement
  • Kenneth Leighton: Sonatina No.2, slow movement
  • Claude Debussy: Sarabande
  • De Falla: El Amor Brujo (Love the Magician’) , an Andalusian gypsy tale

Although this is a free event, we greatly welcome any donations. As a small independent charity, we receive no Council or government funding and Covid-19 has made relying solely on income from hire fees and ticket sales incredibly difficult. Anything you can give is hugely appreciated. You can donate to us online here.
