BBC Radio 3 Concerts

Chamber music recitals based on a theme or style, at LSO St Luke’s.

The charm of chamber music finds its ideal home in the Jerwood Hall: be it a spirited string quartet, a soaring violin perfectly paired with a piano, or the lilting sounds of a song recital, lunchtime concerts have been a staple at LSO St Luke’s for twenty years. During this time, we have welcomed a top calibre selection of soloists and ensembles to perform in the Hall’s world-class acoustics. 

Our 2023/24 series is no exception and captures something for everyone: expect passion, fantasy and lyricism from a great variety of music, all taking place on an intimate scale. Browse the concerts below and don’t forget our multibuy discount offer: £12 tickets when you book for three or more BBC Radio 3 concerts in the 2023/24 season at the same time. 

Each concert lasts approximately one hour. If you can’t make it on the day, the concerts are recorded for future broadcast, and you can listen on BBC Radio 3 at a later date.
