Although autumn seems to be disappearing in Roskilde, the truth is that it is still a long way off. With the arrival of Vivaldi’s most famous work, we will pause the passing of the seasons to enjoy them all together. The Four Seasons, one of the earliest examples of program music, depicts an array of picturesque scenes proper of each season.
Vivaldi’s compositions are a vivid testimony to his memories of the seasons. Arriving in Prindsen on December 3, you can now create memories of the Seasons of your own. And better yet, is the fact that, if you are a student you can enjoy a 10% off discount to experience this amazing masterpiece. The enchanting venue, which used to serve as a royal privileged inn in 1695 and is now redesigned by renowned architect Ole Pedersen, will get the Candlelight treatment as hundreds of candles decorate its hall.
At the upcoming Candlelight concert, the seasons will come to life as the talented Copenhagen Strings, thread note by note, selections of the four violin concertos. Don’t miss the opportunity to listen to Vivaldi’s Four Season in a whole new light!
First, you’ll hear Spring as the festive song of birds and calming flowing creeks welcome the warm weather. Then, Summer will arrive with its suffocating heat, followed by a refreshing breeze. Autumn will then rise in joy as people celebrate bountiful harvests and its pleasing weather. Finally, Winter will blow its chilly breeze making your teeth chatter as you hope for spring to arrive again.
The Candlelight series typically takes place twice each night with two back to back 60-65 minute performances. Doors will open at least 30 minutes prior to each show, enough time to purchase a beer, wine or soda and get comfortable, but to also soak up the dreamy atmosphere created by the flickering light with your companion. Students will need to bring a valid id to enjoy their 10% off discount on all the zones.
Not all photos are of the venues.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles and seats will be spaced out.
