For 50 years the Manchester Camerata have been exploring what it means to be a chamber orchestra from within and without the chamber. Across that time, they have proven as interested in tackling Mozart as they are new works, of venerating chamber music’s past as they are forging its future.
In Unquiet, coming to the Howard Assembly Room on Saturday 29 October, Manchester Camerata have programmed a resolutely modern concert anchored by Philip Glass, perhaps the contemporary classical composer who has found the most success outside the genre. Alongside him are composers pushing through that boundary in both directions, those following Glass’s path, and those trying to find a way in from the outside.
