Manchester Camerata is acknowledged as one of the UK’s leading chamber orchestras and ‘has a reputation for bringing audiences first-class performances that are bursting with vitality’. We can back this claim up after watching them last weekend in ‘Love and Death’.
Held at the Manchester Cathedral, we had an extremely enjoyable time listening to pieces from Mahler, Mozart and Schubert. The feeling of energy of the arrangements was accentuated by the 'bobbing' of the heads of the violins. It was a bit like watching a storm pass!
The space and acoustics of the cathedral added to the atmosphere of the event, with the Dean of the cathedral, Very Revd Rogers Govender, commenting that the continuous calls to increase the seating was demonstrated by the volume of the patrons packed into the venue.
We will be supporting as a part of Camerata Connect and are looking forward to building our relationship with this fantastic organisation.
