With their numerous recordings reaching great critical acclaim, the ensemble is continually regarded as one of the finest groups in Europe since their founding in 1991.
With an evening, packed full of all your family favourites, the concert kicks off with the well-known elegance of Strauss’s Die Fledermaus Overture, before a selection of suites and highlights from Tchaikovsky festive ballets. Join the orchestra as they explore the iconic moments of the Nutcracker through the wonder of the Arabian Dance and the romantic Waltz of the Flowers.

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.
