Manchester Camerata Ensemble

Manchester Camerata Ensemble


The excellence of Manchester’s finest chamber orchestra is distilled in its ensemble - directed by the dynamic young violinist, Giovanni Guzzo.

STRAUSS arr.HASENHORL Till Eulenspiegel (einmal anders!)
FRANZ DANZI Quartet in B flat op. 40 no. 3

Tonight eight of their musicians combine in different formations for a varied evening of music. The Danzi quartet offers a delightful showpiece for the bassoonist and the evening opens with a condensed version of the riotous, cheeky and characterful Strauss tone poem, Till Eulenspeigel (einmal anders - in another way!). There’ll also be a surprise new work by Camerata’s talented composer-in-residence Brahim Kerkour.

The ensemble concludes with the masterly Schubert Octet - as dramatic and heartfelt a piece of chamber music as you’ll ever hear.
