Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and Gloria by Candlelight

Fri 18 November at 7:30 pm until 9:30 pm

London Concertante are joining with vocal duo Fair Oriana, historical repertoire specialists, for a programme of Baroque masterpieces. London Concertante are delighted to perform Vivaldi’s Four Seasons alongside some of the best vocal pieces of the Baroque period. 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.

 

Known for the purity of their voices and trade-mark blend, Fair Oriana specialise in singing historical repertoire. Specialist early music sopranos Angela Hicks and Penelope Appleyard joined forces in 2019 to form Fair Oriana, a duo that mixes their passion for historical music with entertaining staging and contemporary influences. The two singers have been praised for their acting abilities as part of their performances and like to bring theatre to some of their concert programmes.
