The Hunt is on! An Evening of Candlelit Classical MusicPosted 20th July, 2017
Think a balmy summer evening, a gentle breeze drifting through the windows of our Grade II listed Sheffield venue. A glass of perfectly chilled white in your hand, as twilight drifts over the waterway. Settling into our bespoke boardroom chairs, in a room full of candles, waiting for the first strains of our intimate evening of candlelit music to begin.
We can't tell you how much we adore Manchester Collective, a group of young, intensely talented musicians, who want to bring classical music to the North, through a selection of concerts in unusual venues. They say it doesn't matter if you don't know your Brahms from your Beiber, all you need to be willing to do is listen. On Thursday 13th July, the string quartet of Manchester Collective tackled three masterworks from Widmann, Phillip Glass and Beethoven, in the form of The Hunt.
They say "Widmann's piece is one of the most celebrated of a new generation of German composers for a very good reason - his “Hunt” Quartet is thrilling, tuneful, dark, and violent. Phillip Glass' String Quartet, "Buczak", is a profound and uplifting musical poem written to celebrate the tragically short life of the artist Brian Buczak, and the programme concluded with Beethoven’s epic String Quartet in C-sharp minor, Op. 131, a sprawling testament to human achievement."
Manchester Collective performed to a completely sold out crowd, we provided the tipples, with handpicked wines and beers from our friends at Starmore Boss, and listened to the most beautiful, sometimes a bit weird, a little bit challenging, but excellently performed classical music.
And as per usual, the feedback just blew us away...
(We stuck this into Google Translate - "Many thanks for the wonderful evening" - we love Magdalena!)
