Beethoven Piano Concerto series

Due to continuing issues caused by Covid-19, the Beethoven Piano Concerto concerts planned at the Barbican between 3 and 9 December are no longer taking place. Performances have been rescheduled at LSO St Luke's between 5 and 15 December, with additional Barbican concerts on 16 December.

‘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 performs two of Beethoven’s piano concertos with Sir Simon Rattle and the LSO.
