We often find ourselves humming the tunes of the movie we just watched when coming out of the cinema. Sometimes they get stuck in our heads and sometimes it happens because they are intricate works of art that really capture the emotional intensity of the film or scene. For this reason, the enchanting Candlelight concert series has a very special treat for music lovers and cinephiles alike. This season, it’s hosting marvelous tributes to iconic film scores at Edinburgh’s greatest locations.
St. Mary’s Cathedral, The Caves, and St. Giles Cathedral will get a Candlelight glow-up, as first-rate musicians perform, surrounded by a sea of flickering candles. And there’s nothing like a well-chosen soundtrack to amplify the mood, so sit back, relax, and let the power of music take over you!
Breathtaking pieces composed by the talented Ludovico Einaudi are being brought to life by candlelight at St Mary’s Cathedral. I Giorni, Le Onde, Primavera, and Elegy for the Arctic are some of the awe-inspiring works set to be performed. Sit back and relax as a solo pianist captivates you with famous, soothing melodies carrying an ineffable weight of depth and emotion.
Candlelight has wowed audiences worldwide and this season, it’s taking over some of Edinburgh’s charming and historic venues for a series of tributes to iconic film soundtracks and scores. They are ingrained in our brains and are synonymous with the films they accompany, but they also act as stand-alone works of art.
