Manchester Camerata will also feature the next instalment of the Gramophone Award-nominated Mozart, Made in Manchester cycle featuring the French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet and Music Director Gábor Takács-Nagy. The series, which pairs the piano concertos with opera overtures in a recording for the first time, has achieved huge critical acclaim.
These concerts take place at Manchester’s stunning Stoller Hall, part of Chetham’s School of Music, which are both partners for the Mozart cycle alongside Chandos Records.
