Holidaymakers who want to escape somewhere warm but with a heavy splash of high-brow culture should consider the Canary Islands this winter.
The Canary Islands Music Festival, running until February 16th, brings together some of the finest classical music in the world.
Each concert takes place in both the Tenerife Auditorium in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Los Palmas’ Auditorio Alfredo Kraus on Gran Canaria.
Some of the highlights include Christoph Eschenbach and the Philadelphia Orchestra playing Schubert symphonies on January 29th and 31st, while Michael Gielen along with the Baden Baden and Freiburg SWR Orchestra will tackle Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No 4 on January 28th and 31st.
Other big names which will be performing include Santa Cecilia Orchestra from Rome and Martha Argerich playing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto Number 1.
The Canary Islands Music Festival began in 1985, the 300th anniversary of Bach, Handel and Scarlatti’s birth.
Over the past 25 years it has grown in popularity and is now looked forward to by both performers and spectators.
