For those who are new to the classical music scene but are keen for a romantic candlelit experience, look no further than Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. The concertos will be performed by the London Concertante, an orchestra popular with newbies, whose audience is made up of around of 50 per cent first-time classical concert-goers and promises to leave its audience members with a smile on their faces! The concerts take place throughout the year, tickets are priced at £19 and are available from Fever. Click here to book.
And if you’re in the mood for something soothing, the cathedral will also be hosting a special performance of Beethoven’s iconic Moonlight Sonata on December 28. The name alone evokes the beauty of soft, indirect light illuminating a gentle night. And Manchester Cathedral will provide a striking candlelit backdrop for this timeless song and other sensational pieces, all expertly performed by UK pianist Daniel Grimwood.
Treat yourself and your loved ones to an evening of stunning classical music, and experience the Moonlight Sonata as it was meant to be heard. Click here to get your tickets.
