5. Head to at St George's on Tuesday at 6.30pm for Rush Hour Classics: Daniel Tong – Beethoven Explained. In this second Rush Hour Classics concert of the season, pianist Daniel Tong returns to uncover another of Beethoven’s piano sonatas. Before performing the ‘Pastoral’ in full, Daniel looks deeper into the story behind the music, revealing hidden depths. Immerse yourself in a well-loved classic, or perhaps discover it for the first time. Tickets £12 or free to under-25s, students and jobseekers.
