Manchester Camerata At MIF – The Guardian

Posted on July 15, 2009

On Saturday night I had a wonderful time at Antony and the Johnsons’ performance with the Manchester Camerata. His singing of Beyoncé’s Crazy in Love, with a lovely accompaniment of rippling piano and wind and tremolo strings, was spellbinding. When, three-quarters of the way through the show, the lighting was adjusted to reveal the Manchester Camerata, it was great to hear the local crowd giving their chamber orchestra the ovation they so richly deserve.
