The Four Seasons by Candlelight - Autumn Tour

 
The Four Seasons by Candlelight tour presents a fantastic programme of 18th Century classics performed in an evocative candle-lit style setting with the Mozart Festival Orchestra resplendent in full orchestral costume of the period. The verve and virtuosity of that time is brought to life in this enchanting concert with its elegant staging of favourite works crowned by Vivaldi’s sublime masterpiece.

Antonio Vivaldi was a prolific composer with hundreds of concertos to his name but, despite his works being popular during the Baroque era, he died a pauper. The Four Seasons (Le quattro stagioni) has, several hundred years later, become one of the most revered classical pieces in the world today. The performance will feature a number of greatest hits of the period such as Mozart: ‘Eine kleine Nachtmusik’; Clarke: ‘Trumpet Suite’; Pachelbel: ‘Canon’; Bach: ‘Brandenburg Concerto No 3’;  Handel:  ‘Let the Bright Seraphim’, ‘Eternal Source of Light Divine’ and ‘Lascia ch'io pianga’ from Rinaldo, before concluding with Vivaldi’s seminal work. The concert allows music fans of all ages the chance to experience the compositions in an environment that conjures up the atmosphere of the time in which they were first performed.

 The Four Seasons by Candlelight with the Mozart Festival Orchestra, David Juritz - conductor / violin, Caroline MacPhie - soprano and Crispian Steele-Perkins - trumpet, will be appearing:
