Playlist: Southbank Centre’s 2020/21 classical season

Wednesday, February 19, 2020 - 21:20

With more than 230 concerts, our classical season makes for a lot of music. To give you a flavour of what's to come, we've put together this Spotify playlist featuring some of the incredible music and artists appearing throughout the season.

I strongly believe classical music is a dynamic form that has so much to say to us now, so we've tried to bring together many of the personalities who are really doing that.
Gillian Moore, Southbank Centre Director of Music on our 2020/21 season

Among the pieces featured in the playlist, you’ll hear performances from two of our associate artists for 2020/21, Víkingur Ólafsson and Patricia Kopatchinskaja. As well as compositions from Ravi Shankar, Brent Sørenson and Claude Vivier, who our season will focus on in 2021.



The 2020/21 Classical Season at Southbank Centre features over 230 concerts celebrating artists, performers, and composers who are seeking to push classical music forwards in new directions.

Sadly, for everyone’s safety, our venues are currently closed. But you can still get your Southbank Centre fix online. We will continue to share inspiring and thought-provoking arts stories through our website and social channels.

As a charity, we rely on ticket sales for a huge chunk of our income. But now they’ve stopped. And it's a huge worry to us, and the people we work with. In difficult times, we all need the escape of art and culture; it can inspire and unite us. So please – if you can afford to – consider a donation to the Southbank Centre today, to help us be there for you in the future.
