The Neoclassical St George’s Hall has something special gracing its sweeping space this summer. On August 25, there will be a Candlelight tribute to Ludovico Einaudi, featuring Einaudi’s legendary compositions by candlelight, performed by a talented pianist. Pretty magical-sound, huh? Tickets are available now.
As the pianist, Fionnuala Ward, takes to the atmospherically lit stage, you’ll hear 60 minutes of classical Einaudi masterpieces. The selection of the Italian composer’s works will include Primavera, Rêverie, Nuvole Bianche and many more. A pianist’s performance, surrounded by hundreds of candles: can you picture a more magical setting? There’ll be two candlelight performances inspired by Ludovico Einaudi on the night – one at 6pm and another at 8.30pm – so you can choose a time that suits your evening schedule best.
St George’s Hall features traditional high ceilings, fantastic frescos and stunning chandeliers, providing an ideal location for this picture-perfect night of music. The 19th-century venue has a colourful history of entertainment: Charles Dickens used to host readings in the small concert room back in the 1800s, while The Beatles’ Ringo Starr performed on the roof in 2008; the entertainment schedule here has truly spanned genres, crafts and centuries. Give your calendar a glow up and book today.
