Manchester Camerata

Manchester Camerata

The Manchester Camerata is “redefining what an orchestra can do”. Under GáborTakács-Nagy, their new Music Director, it has “reinvented itself ”. 

As a result, it was the winner of the Best Ensemble Award in the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Music Awards in May 2017. We are very lucky that the most exciting ensemble working in Britain today has agreed to come to Stamford in their award-winning year.

This concert starts with the Overture to the Marriage of Figaro. The opera almost didn’t get off the ground as the Beaumarchais play on which it is based was at first banned in Vienna. Weber wrote most of his clarinet music, including the Second Clarinet Concerto, in 1811 for the virtuoso, Heinrich Baermann. it was immediately successful and established his reputation as a composer. Brahms wrote his Second Symphony in 1877 during a visit to Carinthia. Its composition was brief in comparison to the 21 years he took to write his first. Brahms, of course, wrote the Second Symphony for a full symphony orchestra, so as with the other pieces in this programme, it has been transcribed for performance by a chamber orchestra.
