Add to my Calendar 12-04-2019 19:30 12-04-2019 21:30 36 Bach - Brandenburg Concertos by Candlelight If you're looking for a romantic candlelit experience - or simply want to enjoy some classical music greats in a gorgeous setting - then this is the concert for you. UK based chamber orchestra London Concertante regularly performs up to and over one hundred concerts per year, making it the busiest ensemble of its kind in the country. With their numerous recordings reaching great critical acclaim, the ensemble is continually regarded as one of the finest groups in Europe since its founding in 1991. Described by Classic FM as ‘the perfect gateway into the world of Baroque music,’ the ‘Brandenburg Concertos’ are some of the most iconic pieces by J.S Bach. From his riveting use of the harpsichord, to his sublime control over emotion of the concerto, his collection of concertos truly are a triumph. Accompanying Bach are two giants of the classical era - Mozart and Vivaldi. Mozart’s captivating ‘Flute Quartet in D’ is the penultimate piece in the program, and before this we are treated to Vivaldi’s programmatic masterwork - ‘The Four Seasons’, marked by his playful and effervescent style, and his energetic and exciting writing. A night full of glistening melodies, enthralling instrumental interplay and staggering musicianship, this is one concert you do not want to miss! If you don’t consider yourself ‘in the know’ about Mozart, Beethoven, or Bach, fear not, this is the orchestra for you. The ensemble boasts an 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 playing, and leaving with a smile on their faces.   ‘The talent on display is breathtaking’ - Sunam, October 2018   ‘A magical experience’ - Geraldine, June 2018   ‘Really accessible, entertaining and beautiful’ - Audience Member, 2018 St Martin-in-the-Fields, London DD/MM/YYYY
