    Vivaldi's Four Seasons by candlelight - London Concertante
    London Concertante, Roberto Ruissi
    Southwark Cathedral London SE1 9DA
    United Kingdom

    London Concertante are one of Britain's finest and most in demand chamber ensembles, performing reguarly across the country and throughout Europe. This concert sees the ensemble joined by young violin virtuoso Roberto Ruissi. After having received critical acclaim for a number of their recordings and tours, London Concertante perform a selection of classical favourites in the stunning Southwark Cathedral.

    Nestled amongst frequently performed works by the ensemble, Dvorák's Serenade for Strings typifies music from one of his most fruitful and joyous periods of his career, following his recent marriage and the birth of his first son. The vivacious tempo of the 3rd movement beautifully compliments the wistful melodies of the 4th movement to create a stunning composition, brimming with contrasting moods and emotions. Despite being composed in only twelve days, the piece combines humorous high spirits, lyrical beauty and exuberance, to form a well rounded composition with the ability to entertain listeners of all ages.

    This programme is not to be missed!

    Brandenburg Concerto No 3 in G
    Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
    Serenade for Strings in E

    Iain is a Sony Award-winning broadcaster and has collaborated with artists including Dame Margaret Price, Galina Gorchakova, Roderick Williams and Bryn Terfel. His recordings straddle an eclectic repertoire ranging from Beethoven to Judith Weir to English Song. His recording of the complete Rachmaninov songs has just been released by Delphian Records.

    We look forward to an exceptional evening of music making here at the Wallace Collection with a performance including works by Granados and De Falla.

    Before the concert, at 6pm, Director of the Wallace Collection Xavier Bray will deliver a lecture introducing El Greco to Goya - Spanish Masterpieces from The Bowes Museum. Entry to this very special talk can be combined with your concert ticket for just £5.
