Manchester Camerata conducted by Gábor Takács-Nagy

As he takes up the reigns as Principal Conductor and Music Director of Manchester Camerata this autumn, the orchestra releases their first recording with Gábor Takács-Nagy. The celebrated Hungarian violinist-turned-conductor and his Mancunians present an exclusive digital release of two Russian works that straddle the turn of the 20th century and illuminate different musical strands – Tchaikovsky’s Romantic elegance and Prokofiev’s early, compositional irreverence. Yet these two works also share a common classicism: the Mozartian intricacy and grace of Tchaikovsky’s cello “concerto”, performed here by Takács-Nagy’s eminent fellow-Hungarian Miklós Perényi – in the composer’s original version rather than the more commonly heard revision by the work’s dedicatee Wilhelm Fitzhagen – and the Haydn-esque symphonic form on which Prokofiev hung his 20th-century harmonies.
