About this Event

We are delighted to welcome the eminent pianist Chris Green-Armytage to Marchmont for solo piano recital featuring what he's described as an 'unashamedly romantic' programme of Beethoven, Chopin, Schubert, Brahms and Ravel.

The second in a new series of 'Music at Marchmont' events in the care of our Musical Director Simon Leach.

The concert takes place in arguably the finest room at Marchmont, Sir Robert Lorimer's majestic oak-panelled Music Room.

Doors open at 6:30pm for pre-concert drinks included in the ticket price. The concert begins at 7:00pm and concludes at 8:15pm without an interval.
