    In nearly three decades, Tenerife music lover quotes have become an international reference for classical music, thanks to the high quality of each edition. In addition, the canary festival is in charge of opening the season of classical music in Europe, being the only one that takes place in winter, thanks to the kindness of the winter season in the Canary Islands.

    The mild temperatures and a successful program have been raising the bar in Canary Islands Music Festival, which have passed such important names such as Zubin Mehta, Riccardo Muti or Esa-Pekka Salonen, as directors; musicians like Anna Netrebko, Anne Sophie von Otter, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Yo Yo Ma, Murray Perahia or Ivo Pogorelich; and orchestras such as Philharmonia Orchestra, Vienna Symphony, Les Musiciens du Louvre or Mahler Chamber Orchestra.

    In addition to the concerts to be heard in Tenerife, the Canary Islands Music Festival performances are shared by the rest of the islands involving all canaries’ people. And, this year, due to crisis, they will enjoy last minute tickets for unemployed and young less than 30 years old.
