The brothers Lucas and Arthur Jussen are the world’s foremost piano duo, recording exclusively for Deutsche Grammophon since 2010. They are currently Artists in Residence   at the Konzerthaus Berlin for the 2021-22 season. They have performed with orchestras such as the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, Concertgebouworkest (Amsterdam) and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, as well as Montréal, Sydney, Singapore and Shanghai Symphony Orchestras. They have collaborated with conductors such as Christoph Eschenbach, Valery Gergiev, Manfred Honeck, Sir Neville Marriner, Andris Nelsons, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Jukka-Pekka Saraste and Jaap van Zweden.

Their debut CD with works by Beethoven received platinum status and was awarded the Edison Klassiek audience award. A Schubert recording and Jeux, a CD dedicated to French piano music, were subsequently released. Their recording of Mozart’s Piano Concertos KV 365 and KV 242 together with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and Sir Neville Marriner reached gold status. The Jussen brothers also recorded Poulenc’s Double Piano Concerto and Saint-Saëns’ The Carnival of the Animals with the Concertgebouworkest and Stéphane Denève, as well as concertos and chorales by Bach with the Amsterdam Sinfonietta. The latest addition to their discography is The Russian Album (released March 2021) which features works for two pianos by Rachmaninov, Stravinsky and Arensky.

How the Camerata Musica Free Student Ticket Scheme works

Thanks to generous support from the Cavatina Trust, Camerata Musica is able to offer Free Student Tickets to selected concerts. (Please note the scheme does not cover Lieder concerts or solo piano recitals.)

  • Students in higher education and those aged 18 to 25 are eligible for the Free Student Tickets scheme.
  • Students need to book using a credit card (either in person at the ADC Box Office, by phone, or online), making a fully refundable £10 deposit.
  • The credit card used for purchase must not have an expiry date within two months of the purchase being made, otherwise a refund might not be possible.
  • Tickets will be held for collection at the Ticket Desk on the night of the performance (we regret that Free Tickets cannot be sent by post).
  • Provided the Free Tickets are collected and used, the full cost of the deposit will be refunded to the payment card within a few days of the concert. Please note that if the Free Tickets are not collected and used, the deposit will be retained.
  • When collecting the Free Tickets you may be asked to present a current student card or a card showing proof of age.
