London Symphony Orchestra/Rattle & Krystian Zimerman

Beethoven Piano Concerto Marathon

On sale date
Pianist Krystian Zimerman

Zimerman, Rattle and Beethoven: three great names, and five superb piano concertos, in one remarkable concert. The unquestioned highlight of this year of Beethoven celebrations.

Over three concerts, Sir Simon Rattle and the revered Polish pianist Krystian Zimerman have played all five of Beethoven’s piano concertos. Now they perform them all in one marathon concert. From the youthful first to the mighty ‘Emperor’, this is a real one-off: an unprecedented meeting of great musical minds.

That’s no exaggeration: the unique rapport between Zimerman and Sir Simon is based upon years of shared ideals and mutual respect. Gramophone described their partnership as ‘a thing of wonder’, praising their ‘thrilling sense of purpose’. Crucially, neither of them ever forgets that Beethoven is bigger than both of them, making this unprecedented, unrepeatable concert a worthy tribute to Beethoven at the end of this, his 250th anniversary year.

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.

The performance is expected to finish around 9.30pm, including two intervals. Please note the earlier start time.
