Manchester Collective: Enescu Octet

Manchester Collective - string octet

Bach Cello Suite No 1 in G Major
Panufnik Modlitwa
Tenney Koan
Tavener The Lamb
Enescu String Octet in C Major, Op 7

Quite simply, we’ve put a bunch of our favourite music into this show. Rather than sticking to a single theme or composer, in this programme we get the chance to show off our musical range - to flex our muscles as we get up close and personal with some of the greatest music ever written.

This show takes us from focussed and intense works for just one instrument (Bach’s G Major Cello Suite), to the huge combined string sound of Enescu’s String Octet; from the shape-shifting Koan by James Tenney to the haunting Modlitwa, a musical prayer by father-daughter compositional team, Andrzej and Roxanna Panufnik.

For the last time this season, we’ll be touring our trademark “radical human experience through live music” to concert halls, warehouses, clubs, and factories all over the UK.

In the words of Stephen Pritchard, music critic for the Observer: “Catch it if you can - the future has arrived.”
