With their numerous recordings reaching great critical acclaim, the ensemble is continually regarded as one of the finest groups in Europe since its founding in 1991.

Indulge in the richness of Mozart’s Symphony No 29. Composed when was only 18, this piece was one of the first in which we really hear his symphonic voice come to fruition. Its’ gentle opening theme, contrast with its’ dazzling third movement, makes for joyous listening. Following this is his ‘Sinfonia Concertante’ - relax in the candlelit ambience of the cathedral, and bathe in the piece’s warm expansiveness as London Concertante brings out the life and energy of the penultimate piece in the program. The evening is completed by Vivaldi’s iconic ‘Four Seasons’. Four concerti full of glistening melodies, enthrallinginstrumental interplay and staggering string writing, this is one concert you do not want to miss.

If you don’t consider yourself ‘in the know’ about Mozart, Beethoven, or Bach, fear not, this is the orchestra for you. The ensemble boasts an 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 playing, and leaving with a smile on their faces.
