Concert information

When Beethoven was young, the piano was unrecognisable as the instrument we know today. By the end of his life, it was transformed, in part, by the imagination, scope and expressive power of his own music. Louis Lortie pairs the grandeur of Beethoven’s most ambitious early sonata with the concentrated emotion of 'Les Adieux', played by an artist who is, in the words of 'Gramophone' magazine, “living proof that you can maintain an individual and distinctive voice while remaining scrupulously true to the composer”.

The concert will last approximately one hour, without interval, and will be recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3. All seating is unreserved.
