Vivaldi - The Four Seasons
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, this piece truly is a triumph. Accompanying Bach are two giants of the classical era - Mozart and Haydn. Mozart’s captivating ‘Flute Concerto in D’ continues the concert, before we are treated to ‘Winter’ from Vivaldi’s programmatic masterwork - ‘The Four Seasons’. This is one concert you do not want to miss!
If you’ve never been to a classical concert before, fear not! The ensemble boasts an audience record in which an impressive 50% of spectators are first-time classical concert goers! London Concertante has its audience laughing at jokes, gasping at virtuosity, moved by gorgeous playing, and leaving with a smile on their faces. Their numerous recordings have reached great critical acclaim, and the ensemble has continually been regarded as one of the finest groups in Europe since its founding in 1991.
