St Giles-without-Cripplegate

Tickets £20 (includes interval drinks)

St Giles Cripplegate provides the backdrop for this extraordinary opportunity to hear two of Beethoven’s majestic piano concertos in their arrangements for piano and string quintet. His last piano concerto, No 5 or The Emperor, is one of the piano repertoire’s most demanding but glorious works here performed by renowned French pianist Elizabeth Sombart.
