About your host

I am well connected in London's classical music circles but also have a good knowledge of the Soho backstreets where we will walk. My career in music has given me a thorough knowledge of composers and their work, and I do these tours because I love all forms of music, not just classical!

What we’ll do

After coffee, we'll discover Soho secrets for fans of Haydn, Mozart and Handel (whose house Jimi Hendrix later lived in). We'll visit that house, as well as looking in on Steinway & Sons, who supplied instruments to Rachmaninov, Liszt and countless others. We'll see Wigmore Hall, where many works received their first performances. All along our route, we’ll listen to a playlist of pieces written…

Where you'll be

The back streets of Soho have a special atmosphere of hidden London. In this context we will visit St George's church in Hanover Square, which Handel attended, and look at the house where both he and Jimi Hendrix lived. We'll visit Steinway & Sons, piano manufacturers for the great composers. We will end at Wigmore Hall, described as the best chamber music hall in the world and home to many legendary classical music premieres.
