Great works up close.

‘Beethoven’s instrumental music opens up to us the kingdom of the gigantic and the immeasurable.’ ETA Hoffmann

In the 250th anniversary year of Beethoven’s birth, we have invited some of our favourite musicians to join us for a year-long series, focusing on those works for which Hall One is the ideal venue. They include period instrument specialists such as Rachel Podger, Pieter Wispelwey, and the Chiaroscuoro Quartet with Krisztian Bezuidenhout, alongside our residents Aurora Orchestra and the Brodsky Quartet, who will perform the electrifying late quartets one at a time in rush-hour concerts.

We are also delighted to host international guest artists Francois-Frederic Guy with the Hammerklavier Sonata, Trio Wanderer with a clutch of piano trios, while the Jacques Thibaud Trio perform the string trios. Last, but not least, we welcome back Thomas Gould as soloist in the violin concerto and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble performing the spell-binding Septet.
