MOZART: MADE IN MANCHESTER WITH MANCHESTER CAMERATA
MOZART MADE IN MANCHESTER WITH MANCHESTER CAMERATA
By Steve Cooke
Manchester Camerata, who are celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2022, are returning to the Stoller Hall with another instalment in their Mozart, Made in Manchester series. This concert series is part of a five-year collaboration between the orchestra and Chetham’s School of Music to perform and record all of Mozart’s piano concertos. Their concert celebrates Mozart at his very best, delving into some of his later operas (Cosi Fan Tutte and The Magic Flute) as well as some of his most epic piano concertos. It also brings together the undeniable chemistry between Camerata’s much loved and charismatic Music Leader, Gábor Takács-Nagy with eminent pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet.
This concert is supported in memory of former Camerata violinist, Sheila Williams, and her husband Rhys.

Manchester Camerata is a registered charity working and performing in Manchester and worldwide since 1972.
Be it opening Glastonbury festival in front of 40,000 people or working intimately in care homes with people living with dementia, they believe in the transformative and connecting nature of music. That connection drives all they do, and Camerata work with the best creative talent to make this happen.
The Camerata have a reputation for playing music with no boundaries. From an orchestral rave performed in isolation to over one million people during the Covid-19 pandemic, to touring Mozart in the most beautifully intimate concert halls or re-imagining classical music with electronic producers at the top of their game, they believe in great music and present this to us at the highest level.
To achieve this level of artistic excellence and forward-thinking ethos, collaboration is at the heart of everything they do. Led by visionary Music Director, Gábor Takács-Nagy, Camerata collaborate with diverse international artists, from New Order to Martha Argerich to Aziz Ibrahim to Lewis Capaldi.
If you have rarely or maybe never engaged with classical music, then Camerata could be your gateway!
