Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

The pianist Elisabeth Leonskaja takes her turn in LSO St Luke's Beethoven Piano Sonata Cycle, with Piano Sonata No 8 in C minor ('Pathétique'); Piano Sonata No 9 in E, Op 14 No 1; and Piano Sonata No 31 in A flat, Op 110. (Beethoven's beautiful 'Pathétique' sonata sits alongside his painful realisation of ever-increasing deafness. Op 14 No 1 is an expansive and lyrical work dedicated to Baroness Josefa von Braun. The expressive final movement of Op 110 contains the deeply moving 'Klagender Gesang' (tearful song).
