Dismissed by the composer’s own publisher as mere trifles, Beethoven’s piano bagatelles are proof that both humour and profundity can be found in the smallest of packages. From delicate miniatures to bottled echoes of his most thunderous piano sonatas, it’s a testament to the genius of the man to see what he could achieve with two minutes and a piano.

These concerts are part of the Barbican's Beethoven Weekender - the ultimate celebration of Ludwig van Beethoven, exploring the man, the music, and his place in time in a jam-packed festival weekend.

There will be four concerts at LSO St Luke's:

  • Saturday 1 February 1.30pm
  • Saturday 1 February 5.30pm
  • Sunday 2 February 12.30pm
  • Sunday 2 February 4.30pm
