Have you ever really wanted to get to know great music, to find out why it moves you in such unique and fundamental ways?

If so, join us to explore an absolute classic of baroque repertoire, Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.

This is no ordinary concert. From the moment you buy a ticket, you’ll join a community discovering what makes Vivaldi so special through a series of activities including talks, playlists and pop-up performances to enjoy in the months leading up to the concert. The conversations you have will even inform the performance itself.

Then enjoy the Four Seasons in all its glory – music that is still popular precisely because it’s so exceptional.

It’s not compulsory, but to get the most out of Turning Points performance, you’ll need to agree to pass your contact details to us after you’ve bought a ticket. We’ll then let you know about all the extra activities we have planned. You will receive further information about this on confirmation of booking.

Free events:

Pop Up Performance: Vivaldi’s Trio Sonatas
Wed 25 Jan, 7–7.20pm | Concert Level Foyer (-2)
Vivaldi’s Trio Sonatas show a different, more intimate side to the composer than the larger-scale and more elaborate Four Seasons. Players from the OAE Experience Ensemble will be popping-up in the Kings Place foyer to perform several of the finer examples. Join us for the chance to see these performed up close and personal, and a chance to ask the musicians what it’s like to play them.

Study Evening: Get to know the real Vivaldi
Thu 2 Feb, 6.30–8.30pm | St Pancras Room
Go in depth with the experts to discover things about Vivaldi you’ll never find in newspaper articles or on Wikipedia. What made Vivaldi tick? Why did he write such special music for the strings? Join Dr Naomi Barker from our academic partners the Open University to find out this and much much more.
