Upclose Ii

Date: Tuesday 05th February 2013 20:00

Venue: The Deaf Institute, Manchester

UpClose is our eclectic series of laid-back concerts in smaller, more intimate venues around the city, shining a light on hidden gems, both in terms of the music and the venues themselves. Relax and unwind with a drink and enjoy a blend of classical and contemporary music at close quarters. Arrive early for contemporary sound-based artworks by John Hyatt and Lewis Sykes, taking inspiration from the music at each event.This performance places two of Beethoven’s early quartets Op.18 alongside music by the 20th century Finnish composer, Aulis Sallinen. Sallinen’s third string quartet is a lyrical set of variations based on the mournful folk tune, Peltoniemi Hintrik’s Funeral March.

You&ll also hear Leader Giovanni Guzzo playing the 1709 Stradivarius, which is on extended loan to Manchester Camerata by benefactor Jonathan Moulds, President of Bank of America Merrill Lynch&s European business.TICKETS: £10 (£6 students)GROUPS: 6 tickets for price of 5 (Box Office bookings only)UPCLOSE FIXED PACKAGE: Book all 4 UpClose concerts and save 10%Discount cannot be combined with any other offer.
