Pianist Julian Jacobson's birthday marathon

Julian Jacobson - Beethoven Marathon

Pianist Julian Jacobson will be celebrating his 75th birthday with a Beethoven Marathon. On Saturday 12 November 2022, Jacobson will be playing all 32 of Beethoven's Piano Sonatas from memory at St John's Church, Waterloo. Jacobson will perform the sonatas in numerical order, split into three sessions, Morning - sonatas 1 to 12, Afternoon - sonatas 13 to 26, Evening - sonatas 27 to 32. Six days later, Jacobson will be repeating the marathon in Uruguay, on his actual birthday.

This is not the first time that Jacobson has undertaken the feat, in 2003 he performed all the sonatas in a day at St James' Church, Piccadilly, in aid of Wateraid, and repeated the marathon in 2013 at the church of St Martin in the Fields.
