For those who appreciate classical music, this upcoming candlelight concert is an incredible chance to hear the compositions of Frédéric Chopin performed live. The concert will take place on the 20th of April at 6:30pm and 8:30pm at the breathtaking St John’s Cathedral.
Chopin is often referred to as one of the greatest composers of the Romantic era, and his music continues to be admired all over the world. He was a master of the piano, and his compositions were seen as groundbreaking in both their technical and emotional complexity. His music is known for its intricate finger work, as well as being deeply emotional and expressive, and it pushed the boundaries of what was thought possible on the piano at the time. Even today, over 170 years later, his work is still seen as some of the best piano compositions.
Featuring the talented and accomplished pianist Daniel Le, the program for the evening is set to include some of Chopin’s most famous works. Audiences can look forward to performances such as the Fantasie Impromptu in C sharp minor, the Andante Spianato in G major, and the Barcarolle in F Sharp Major Op.60. The program will also feature a selection of Chopin’s preludes, waltzes, études, and the 3rd movement of his Sonata no.3 and Sonata no.2.
The splendour of St. John’s Cathedral will enhance the experience of listening to Chopin’s music, with its grandeur and history evident in the high ceilings and neo-gothic design. The soft radiance of hundreds of candles will create an intimate and romantic atmosphere, transporting you back in time to when Chopin first composed these timeless pieces.
