It’s going to be an unforgettable experience.
Ludovico Einaudi has to be one of the biggest names in contemporary classical music, and on the rare occasion that somebody doesn’t know his name, they’re almost guaranteed to recognise his music. He’s written the scores for countless films and television series, including the amazing Nomadland and every installment of soul-stirring narrative This Is England.
He has a profound talent for compositions that evoke strong emotions in audiences, and that’s why the world loves him. We were super-excited then to find that a candlelight tribute to Ludovico Einaudi will be visiting Copenhagen this October, and we were even more excited to hear that the incredible Østre Gasværk Teater will be hosting.
This gorgeous building in Østerbro was once the gasholder house for Østre Gasværk (Eastern Gasworks), and it’s absolutely colossal. Designed by Martin Nyrop who would eventually design Copenhagen City Hall, this place is perfect for a candlelight concert due to its sheer size and incredible acoustics.
Since 1970 this fantastic venue has been the site of many amazing performances, from Shakespeare to the musical Miss Saigon. Visually, it’s an impressive building, and with its perfectly circular shape and high ceiling, you’re sure to hear the performance in every part of the auditorium. It’s going to be truly spectacular.
This isn’t the only candlelit tribute that Østre Gasværk Teater will be hosting this autumn, either. A whole host of candelit concerts will be in town to entertain Copenhageners. From Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker complete with ballet performance to an amazing performance of Beethoven best works and a Movie Soundtracks evening, there are tons of memorable experiences coming up in Østre Gasværk.
