Join the internationally renowned London Concertante as they return to St Martin-in-the-Fields for the second time this seasons with a porgrammes pack full of enchanting Classic favourites.

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 4 Violins still remains somewhat of a hidden gem of the genre. Scored for four violins and no accompanying orchestra or harpsichord, the players battle for the lead in what results in its lively and vivacious opening movement with a bright and uplifting sense of urgency. 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.

“Just exceptional. If you’ve always wanted to attend a classical concert, but feared it would be snobby or dull, this is for you… Wonderful.” - A happy audience member (December 2017)

“A perfect evening out. We loved it.” - Another happy audience member (November 2017)

“Heady stuff … thrilling virtuoso playing. Exciting listening” - Gramophone Magazine
