London Symphony Orchestra/Alsop

Beethoven, Barber & Tower with Eric Lu

Pianist Eric Lu

American music from either end of the 20th century and the award-winning Eric Lu playing Beethoven – a concert to span the many worlds of guest conductor Marin Alsop.

And if few conductors can span the Atlantic – musically speaking – with more assurance than Marin Alsop, few young pianists have generated as much comment as Boston’s Eric Lu, when he won the 2018 Leeds International Piano Competition. ‘A veritable poet of the keyboard’ was The Guardian’s verdict, but judge for yourself as he plays Beethoven’s most personal and lyrical concerto: the very work with which he scooped the prize.

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.

Two performances: 3.30pm & 6.30pm

The performances are expected to last 1 hour 10 minutes. There will be no interval.

The performances take the place of the concert originally scheduled at 7.30pm on Thursday 28 January.
