Who We Are
Our JOURNEY SO FAR...
At the heart of London Concertante’s Candlelight Concerts lies a deep passion for classical music, a dedication that is palpable in every note they play. The ensemble is composed of exceptionally talented musicians, each a virtuoso in their own right, who come together to weave a tapestry of harmonious melodies that transport listeners to a world of elegance and grace. Their mastery of a wide repertoire, ranging from beloved classics by Vivaldi, Bach and Mozart to classics from cinema or the West End stage, ensures that every concert is a musical journey that resonates with both connoisseurs and newcomers to classical music alike.
What truly sets London Concertante apart is their ability to communicate with the audience, their concerts presented in both an exceptionally professional, yet informal way, whilst the candlelight enhances the concert experience still further, drawing the audience into the heart of the music. This unique interplay of light and sound creates a connection between the musicians and their listeners, fostering an emotional depth that transcends the confines of a traditional concert hall.
London Concertante’s Candlelight Concerts have become synonymous with evenings of enchantment and artistic excellence. Whether held in exceptional historic Cathedrals, grand ballrooms, or other iconic venues, each performance is carefully curated to transport attendees to a bygone era of elegance and refinement. The soothing and captivating power of the music, combined with the mesmerising dance of candlelight, allows for a serene and immersive escape from the demands of modern life.
For those seeking a truly magical and unforgettable musical experience, London Concertante’s Candlelight Concerts offer an opportunity to bask in the beauty of classical music in a setting that harks back to its origins, all whilst creating cherished memories that will linger long after the final notes have faded into the night.
