Manchester Collective: Rosewood
11 May @ 19:30 - 22:15£5
A kaleidoscope of musical colours.
From ‘La Folia’, the original baroque smash hit, to the spiritual music of Julius Eastman, all the way to David Lang’s hot, heavy and hard-hitting ‘Killer’ – this show takes in a dizzying range of music.
Scottish star guitarist Sean Shibe joins forces with Manchester Collective for the first time in an artistic meeting of minds that is long overdue. The set is an ever-changing musical melting pot, demonstrating the extraordinary range of these boundary-breaking performers.
At the heart of the programme are a pair of new works written for Sean and the Collective. British artist Emily Hall writes music that inhabits the spaces between genres – classical, electronic and folk traditions are absorbed and reimagined to create work that is intimate, touching and altogether new. New York composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Kelly Moran also walks an artistic tightrope, poised somewhere between the experimental, the wild and the human.
With Sean performing on electric and acoustic guitars alongside an all-star string quartet lineup, this show will transport you to unexpected sound worlds and strange new places.
