Vivaldi - The Four Seasons by Candlelight

Friday 23rd November 2018, 7.30pm

Join London Concertante for an evening packed full of classical favourites for all the family, including well known works by Mozart, Bach and Vivaldi.

Programme:

  • Mozart - Divertimento in D
  • Pachelbel - Canon in D
  • Bach - Violin Concerto in A minor
  • Arensky - Variations on a theme of Tchaikovsky
  • Vivaldi - “Autumn” & “Winter” from The Four Seasons

Tickets are priced from £19, available from Ticketsource

Enjoy this expertly crafted programme headlined by the renowned, and seasonally chosen, “Autumn” and “Winter” from the Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi.  Expect the icy crispness of the seasons, with chilling runs and aggressive, haunting melodies, as well as the nostalgic warmth of the fire with the heart-warming melody in the second movement of “Winter”.  Accompanied by a selection of audience favourites including Mozart’s charming, lively and brilliant Divertimento and Bach’s virtuosic, spritely and energetic Violin Concerto as well as the compositional masterclass of Pachelbel’s Canon in D, with its iconic ground bass and expertly crafted layering of melodies.  Anton Arensky’s slightly more unusual work adds some stereotypical Russian Romanticism to the programme with a passionate and exhilarating set of variations on a popular tune by another Russian, Tchaikovsky.  The evening promises to be a remarkable journey of musical emotions, enthusiastic interpretations and stunning string playing that will be the talk of the office on Monday!

 London Concertante was founded in 1991 and has gone on to garner an outstanding international reputation. Alongside regular series of concerts at St. Martin-in-the-Fields and Southwark Cathedral, the ensemble also performs at the Southbank Centre, Cadogan Hall and Wigmore Hall, as well as performing across the length and bredth of the UK. International tours have taken them to the USA, Spain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland, Finland, and they will be touring to Italy and again to Spain later in the year. Their numerous recordings receive regular airplay on global radio stations.

If you don’t consider yourself ‘in the know’ about Mozart, Beethoven, or Bach, fear not, this is the orchestra for you. The London Concertante boasts an impressive audience record in which an impressive 50% of spectators are first time classical concert goers! The London Concertante has its audience laughing at jokes, gasping at virtuosity, moved by gorgeous string playing, and leaving with a smile on their faces.
