The Orchestra

Our musicians

Our orchestra give us sound, excitement and creativity, making Manchester Camerata the innovative ensemble it is today.

Music Director

Gábor Takács-Nagy

There’s a real trust between myself and the musicians, and with this comes an openness to taking risks – creative risks that help us achieve the unimaginable. The composer feels an emotion and finds the notes for it – we performers have to find the spiritual values behind each note. This drives me musically – I am not a genius but hopefully have antennas to them.
