Under new guidelines, there are fewer available seats in the Barbican Hall, set as single tickets or in groups of twos, threes and fours. You can only sit in the same seating cluster as someone from your own household (or support bubble) and we ask you to not swap seats so we can maintain a safe distance between you and other groups.

Tickets must be booked online in advance.

Krystian Zimerman and Sir Simon Rattle begin their journey through Beethoven’s piano concertos.

‘Any performance by Zimerman is a special occasion,’ says The Guardian, and this phenomenal Polish pianist is as much a visionary as a virtuoso. Today, he begins a full cycle of Beethoven’s piano concertos with the LSO: a magnificent way to crown this year of Beethoven celebrations.

This concert will also be performed at 3.30pm
