Spread the word, more concerts by candlelight have been revealed.
Concerts by Candlelight have invited Melburnians to relive the greatest works of classical music, from Vivaldi to Mozart to Bach, in an intimate atmosphere and experience music in a new light at some of Melbourne’s most stunning venues.
If vintage classical music isn’t quite your jam, then no worries because the Candlelight series has upped the offering with tribute concerts to some of Jazz’s most celebrated artists like Aretha Franklin, Louis Armstrong, Nina Simone, Duke Ellington and more.
There’s also a tribute to legendary bands Queen and The Beatles as well as French electronic music masters Daft Punk on the cards. You will also be able to soundtrack your night with musical scores from anime favourites as well as be able to relive magical movie moments from The Lion King, Mulan and The Jungle Book.
Melbourne’s first Candlelight concerts featured Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Beethoven’s Best Works, and Chopin’s Best Works, all played by the most talented classical musicians. Don’t worry if you missed out because there are still plenty of upcoming dates where you will be able to experience the compositions of these master composers. There are also tributes to the Italian maestro Ludovico Einaudi coming up.
The Candlelight series takes place twice each night with two back to back 60-65 minute performances. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to each show.
The concerts, which have taken place at venues like The Athenaeum and The Astor Theatre as well as The Timber Yard the Meat Market and St James’ Old Cathedral, have been met by countless 5-star reviews. Guests have said that the evenings are “a creative, enchanting, and new concert experience” and that “the performers were fantastic!”
