Manchester Collective – Night Music

Manchester Collective – Night Music

Mon 1 January 0001 - Wed 7 October 2020
Leeds Town Hall

Manchester Collective

Rakhi Singh - violin
Caroline Pether - violin
Ruth Gibson - viola
Nicholas Trygstad - cello

Edmund Finnis - String Quartet No 1 (Aloysius)
Henryk Górecki - String Quartet No 2 (Quasi una fantasia)

Programme duration approximately 70 minutes. Please note there will be no interval.

Manchester Collective presents Night Music – a concert featuring a pair of small scale, big impact chamber works. Górecki’s second string quartet was written just 27 years ago, but already feels like an essential part of the quartet repertoire. It’s music that is by turn inspiring, hysterical and devastating. We’ve paired it with Aloysius – Edmund Finnis’ first contribution to the quartet canon, a work of quiet beauty and poetry.

As the days grow short, sit back and lose yourself in Night Music.
