Tonight in Manchester Cathedral, the immortal Mozart will be put on trial by the modern composer Sven Helbig. Defending the divine Wolfgang will be one of his most enduring works, the ‘Gran Partita’, his syncopated pulses pleading his case to be revered as one of the most influential and relevant musicians there is to this day. Acclaimed modern composer Sven Helbig will interrogate the ghosts of history with his electronic improvisations inspired by Mozart and determine the impact of his legacy in 2019.
This concert will be staged in the round and will be a standing concert to allow for an even more immersive experience.
NB: There will be some seating around the perimeter for those who need it.
