Viennese Christmas Spectacular by Candlelight

December 1 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

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 an impressive 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.

Tchaikovsky’s elegant Nutcracker Suite leads on from Brahms’ serious Hungarian Dance No.5. In the concert’s penultimate work, Tchaikovsky transports the evening to the magical halls of snowy Tsarist Russia with a regal waltz from his ballet Sleeping Beauty. 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.

Programme to include:
Strauss – Die Fledermaus Overture
Strauss – Tritsch-Tratsch Polka
Tchaikovsky – Sleeping Beauty Waltz
Strauss – Tales from the Vienna Woods
Brahms – Hungarian Dance No. 5
