One of the UKís most distinguished ensembles, Manchester
Camerata takes its name from the 16th century Florentine
Camerata which met to share ideas and discuss the arts.
That same spirit of friendship inspires this special orchestraís intimacy and commitment and underlies the ease with which it draws audiences into its music-making. This programme takes us from Beethovenís First Symphony, whose ëastonishing successí was deemed a ëdanger to musical artí, to Haydnís final symphony which thrilled one contemporary reviewer with its ëfullness, richness and majestyí.
Meet the Artist at 6.45pm
