Beethoven. 32 piano sonatas, 28 pianists, 1 day

This is a very rare opportunity to listen to, live, all of Beethoven's 32 piano sonatas. A great lineup of pianists - 28 of them - will perform. I don't know all of them, but definitely there are more than a few familiar names in the list.

There are 7 sessions, each roughly 2 hours in length, the first session starting at 9am, and the final one starting around 9pm. Tickets can be purchased for individual sessions ($15) or passes for the entire day ($75).

Proceeds from this event will be supporting Melbourne's own 3MBS classical music radio station.

Further information on booking can be found at:
http://www.artscentremelbourne.com.au/whats-on/event.aspx?id=3364

We can figure out where and when to meet beforehand and during the day when we get closer to the date.

Hope to see you there!

    I was there from 9 am to the last sonata. I wandered past the gallery a few times and didn't see anyone. I even sat nearby a few times. Did go before 9 and wait a bit (around 8:40ish) but then went inside to get a good seat. That's an experience and a half. Did anyone get a t-shirt?

      And yes, I did get a t-shirt! :)

      I was about 4 or 5 rows from the front, towards the left. Also in the all-day pass section. I kept umming and ahhing about the t-shirts but in the end decided I would never wear it anyway, so didn't get one.

    Didn't see anyone else either, though it was a bit chaotic with a fair number of people milling around, and with the rush between sessions to get something to eat/drink. Hope everyone who went enjoyed it at least as much as I did!

    Sorry I didn't see the group yesterday - just went to the 3pm session and had to get away quickly - I hoped everyone enjoyed it!

    I have also just heard that there will be standing tickets available ($5) for the concerts that have sold out (seating wise)

      Just to confirm, let's make that the Kirra Gallery shop front, rather than the NGV Shop front. Just in case, I'll email around my contact details later this week.

      Thanks! I aim now to come for the later sessions, maybe starting some time in the afternoon through to the last ones in the evening.

    Hi Leon and Dean, it unfortunately appears that day passes are no longer available. The website says that session passes are available on the day subject to availability.

    No problem. It is a very long day and will be quite exhausting getting through every session!
