‘….Petits Concerts’, a series of convivial recitals at the 1901 Arts Club, an intimate salon style venue just a stone’s throw from Waterloo Station, continues its second season with a December feast of Beethoven, a prelude to the celebrations in 2020 to mark the 250th anniversary of the composer’s birth.


Piano Trio in E flat major, Op.1 No.1
Piano Sonata No.14 ‘Moonlight’, Op.27 No.2 ​
Piano Trio in B flat major ‘Archduke’, Op.97 

In this ninth recital in the ‘…petits concerts’ series, pianist James Lisney is joined by his daughters violinist Emma and cellist Joy in a programme featuring some of the composer’s best-loved works.


The first 20 people to book a full-price ticket for this concert will receive a complimentary 4-CD box set of ‘Beethoven Complete Works for Piano and Violin’ by James Lisney and Paul Barritt (Woodhouse Editions). This offer is also open to students.


Other Woodhouse Editions CDs will be available to purchase at the concert.

Inspired by concerts given by Charles-Valentin Alkan at the Erard showroom in Paris in the 1870s, and hosted by concert pianist James Lisney, ….Petits Concerts brings musicians together in the spirit of “music with friends and amongst friends” in a setting which harks back to the 19th-century European cultural salon. Proceeds from the concert will be donated to The Amber Trust, a charity which helps blind and partially sighted children across the UK who have a talent or love for music, of which James Lisney is a patron.
