Join one of Britain’s finest ensembles, as they tour the country with their programme of classical treats and hidden gems, headlined by Vivaldi’s iconic Four Seasons and accompanied by Pachelbel’s Canon

Founded in 1991, the ensemble continues to travel up and down Britain, and beyond with tours throughout Europe and the USA. Recognised for their irresistible musical interpretations and enchanting performance style, it is no surprise that they have continued to find such far reaching support for over 25 years. Reaching critical acclaim on their numerous recordings, London Concertante have found themselves labeled one of the finest chamber ensembles in Europe.

While perhaps Mozart’s spritely Eine Kleine Nachtmusic and Pachelbel’s ‘Canon’, two of the most loved early classical works, require little introduction, George Phillip Telemann’s Concerto for Viola in G major still remains somewhat of a hidden gem of the genre. As it demonstrates the variety of characteristic capabilities of the Viola, listen out for the hauntingly introvert yet remarkably tender melody of the third movement, before the finale displays the stately and regal capabilities of the instrument. An audience favourite, Bach’s concertos are renowned for their beautiful and relentless exuberance; the violin is pushed to its technical limits with its songlike capabilities and devilish virtuosity throughout. And all this before The Four Seasons! An evening of exhilaration and beauty awaits!

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 a remarkable 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.

“Beautifully played and so enchanting, I fell in love as soon as I heard them play” - A happy audience member (September 2017)

“Thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful music and comedy undertones… Would highly recommend to all…!” - Another happy audience member (November 2017)

“To be relished … they let the music show the full breadth of its textures … all the light and shade you could wish.” - Financial Times
