Corelli – Christmas Concerto
Handel – Messiah Overture
Bach – Violin Concerto in A minor
Vivaldi - The Four Seasons
If you're looking for a romantic candlelit experience, want to enjoy some classical music from the baroque era in a gorgeous setting or simply fancy something Christmassy - 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.
The concert will open with the Strauss's exhilarating Die Fledermauss Overture before making way for the boundless exuberance of the Polish March from his Trisch-Trasch Polka. Tchaikovsky’s elegant Nutcracker Suite leads on from Brahms’ serious Hungarian Dance No.5. In the concert’s penultimate works Tchaikovsky transports the evening to the magical halls of snowy Tsarist Russia with a regal waltz from his ballet Sleeping Beauty and leaves us feeling truly in the Christmas spirit with his Nutcracker Suite. The evening reaches its climax with the famous Blue Danube Waltz, not only proving the crowning jewel of a fabulous night’s worth of music, but the coronation of Johann Strauss II as the master of the Viennese waltz!
