Due to strike action announced by GMB and Unite Union Members, the Barbican will not be able to staff all areas of its operation on Thursday 25 May and regrettably the LSO concert will no longer be able to go ahead on that day. We have been able to reschedule the concert to the day before, Wednesday 24 May, at the revised time of 8.15pm, to allow the earlier Half Six Fix concert to take place as planned the same evening. The programme will remain the same and will run without an interval, to finish at approximately 9.40pm.
We apologise for the inconvenience caused. Audiences affected by the change are being contacted.
The performance schedule for Wednesday 24 May 2023 is:
• 18:30 – Half Six Fix concert with conductor & presenter François-Xavier Roth 10 – 15 minutes of introduction to the work and full performance of Beethoven Symphony No 6 –– i.e.no change
• 20:15 – 21.40 Full concert without interval: the UK premiere of Magnus Lindberg’s Piano Concerto No 3 with Yuja Wang as guest pianist, for whom the concerto was composed and Ludwig van Beethoven Symphony No 6, ‘Pastoral’, François-Xavier Roth conducts.
