This show, the last in Manchester Collective’s 2019-20 season at The Stoller Hall, moves from focused and intense works for just one instrument (Bach’s G-major Cello Suite), to the huge combined string sound of Enescu’s String Octet; from the shape-shifting Koan by James Tenney to the haunting Modlitwa, a musical prayer by father-daughter compositional team, Andrzej and Roxanna Panufnik.

In the words of Stephen Pritchard (Observer/Guardian/Bachtrack): “Catch it if you can – the future has arrived.”

“Quite simply, we’ve put a bunch of our favourite music into this show. Rather than sticking to a single theme or composer, in this programme we get the chance to show off our musical range – to flex our muscles as we get close and personal with some of the greatest music ever written.” Manchester Collective
