German violinist Christian Tetzlaff, another perennially popular Barbican artist, tackles a concerto which stands at the head of the Romantic violin repertoire, and is one of his personal favourites. Beethoven’s perfect blend of virtuosity and lyricism precedes Brahms’s monumental German Requiem, based on a selection of texts from the Lutheran Bible offering comfort and consolation in times of sorrow. Daniel Harding directs the London Symphony Chorus and LSO.

Change of soloist
Dorothea Röschmann is suffering from a virus and has been forced to withdraw from the LSO's concert at the Barbican on Sunday 24 May 2015. Original replacement Miah Persson is also now indisposed and we are extremely grateful to Sally Matthews for agreeing to step in at short notice. The programme for the concert remains unchanged.
