Barber, Britten, Beethoven, Chopin
Date: Saturday 18th April 2015 19:30
Venue: Manchester Cathedral, Manchester
Barber’s Adagio for Strings – a popular choice for orchestras and urban music producers alike – finds its place here at Manchester Cathedral, an eclectic music venue, in a programme that contrasts its very pathos and cathartic passion with the drama and energy of Britten’s Young Apollo. Founder of the world-renowned Takács Quartet, Gábor offers his uniquely insightful interpretation of Beethoven&s String Quartet in F Minor, arranged by Mahler for full string orchestra. This eclectic programme concludes with Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.2, a dazzling yet intimate self-portrait from the most romantic of Romantic composers.
This event is unreserved seating (seat numbers displayed on the booking website do not apply).
