Here’s what you can enjoy on day 4 of the LSO St Luke’s 10th Birthday Festival:
The opening of LSO St Luke’s gave the LSO a springboard to hold composer focus days around the LSO’s orchestral season at the Barbican. LSO Discovery Days offer a unique chance to get to know the composers that are featured in the performances. Open rehearsals and insightful informal talks on topics surrounding composers’ lives can provide a fresh perspective and offer new meaning to what you hear on stage.
Today’s LSO Discovery Day takes German Romantic composer Johannes Brahms as its focal point. Following the morning’s open rehearsal at the Barbican Hall, where you’ll be able to witness how Manfred Honeck shapes Brahms’ work, music critic and author Tom Service will enlighten and debate the stories surrounding Brahms’ past, his personality, and life and works.
Feel free to ask questions, contribute to the discussions, and talk to any member of staff if you have any queries during the day.
Tickets: £17 (£13.50 concessions). Afternoon only from 2.30pm: £12 (no concessions)
Tickets are available on the door, or you can book online
