Discover Medici TV and Manchester Camerata
Wed 25th Apr 2012 - 5:47

Manchester Camerata teams up again with the prestigious classical music broadcaster Medici.tv to beam Camerata's Portrait of Love concert (28 April 2012) for which the orchestra, under the baton of Music Director Gábor Takács-Nagy is joined by mezzo-soprano Anna Stéphany.  

      

This is the third time this season that Manchester Camerata has teamed up with Medici.tv to share its music worldwide - building on a strong creative partnership.

Since it started broadcasting in 2008, medici.tv has built an international reputation by broadcasting over 300 classical music events and by connecting a community of aficionados from 198 countries. 

In three years an estimated 12 million people have watched videos with an average of 80 thousand individual visitors each month.

The Anglo-French mezzo-soprano Anna Stephany teams up with Manchester Camerata again to perform, along with the ensemble's music director Gábor Takács-Nagy a portrait of works by composers struck by the love bug. 

The muse for Webern’s uncharacteristically lush early Slow Movement was Wilhelmine Mörtl, his future wife. Brahms’ Liebeslieder Waltzes explore love in all its shapes and forms.  Dvorak’s Love Songs, in an arrangement here by David Matthews, are all settings of romantic poems by Gustav Pfleger-Moravsky. Souvenir de Florence by Tchaikovsky, king of melodies, was dedicated to his mystery patron, Nadezhda von Meck, whom he never actually met. 

    

This concert will also be streamed to the BBC Music Magazine website, and also the following venues: Gala Theatre, Durham (Live on 28 April), The Maltings, Berwick (Nearcast on 29 April) and Alnwick Playhouse, Northumberland (Nearcast on 28 May)
