Given the extremely broad variety of forms, styles, genres, and historical periods generally perceived as being described by the term "classical music," it is difficult to list characteristics that can be attributed to all works of that type. Vague descriptions abound, such as describing classical music as anything that "lasts a long time," a statement made rather moot when one considers contemporary composers who are described as classical; or music that has certain instruments like violins, which are also found in other genres. However, there are characteristics that classical music contains that are unlike any  other genres of music and Classical Music Tickets make for a performance unlike any other.

The term "classical music" did not appear until the early 19th century, in an attempt to distinctly canonize the period from Johann Sebastian Bach to Beethoven as a golden age.

Let us have a brief look at one of the greatest composers that have formed Classical Music to how we see it today.

Bach was born into a great musical family. His father was the director of the town musicians and all of his uncles were professional musicians. His father taught him to play the violin and harpsichord, and his brother taught him the clavichord and exposed him to much contemporary music.Bach attended St. Michael's School in Luneburg for two years. After graduating he held several musical posts across Germany: he served as director of music toPrince Leopold in Leipzig, and Royal Court Composer toAugustus lll .Bach's health and vision declined  and he died on 28 July 1750.

Bach's abilities as an organist were respected throughout Europe during his lifetime, but he was only recognised as a great composer after a revival of interest and performances of his music in the first half of the nineteenth century. He is now generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time.

To hear one of the greatest composers of all time, it requires one of the greatest orchestras of all time & that could well be judged to be the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

The London Philharmonic Orchestra is one of five permanent symphony orchestras based in London.  Founded in 1932 by the conductors Sir Thomas Beecham and Malcolm Sargent, it was a rival a to the existing London Symphony and BBC Symphony Orchestras.

The founders' ambition was to build an orchestra the equal of any European or American rival. Between 1932 and the Second World War the LPO was widely judged to have succeeded in this regard.

By the 1960's it secured a valuable engagement to play in the Glyndebourne Festival opera house during the summer months. In 1993 it was appointed resident orchestra of the Royal Festival Hall on the south bank of the Thames, one of London's major concert venues. Since 1995 the residency has been jointly held with the Philharmonia. In addition to its work at the Festival Hall and Glyndebourne, the London Philharmonic Orchestra performs nationally regularly at  the Brighton Dome, and atCongress Theatre, Eastbourne  and embarks on international tours.

We have Classical Music Tickets for many performances in London, the UK and international events.
