Barber’s Adagio for Strings – a popular choice for orchestras and urban music producers alike – finds its place here at Manchester Cathedral, an eclectic music venue, in a programme that contrasts its very pathos and cathartic passion with the drama and energy of Britten’s Young Apollo. Founder of the world-renowned Takács Quartet, Gábor offers his uniquely insightful interpretation of Beethoven’s String Quartet in F Minor, arranged by Mahler for full string orchestra. This eclectic programme concludes with Chopin’s Piano Concerto no.2, a dazzling yet intimate self-portrait from the most romantic of Romantic composers.

This event is unreserved seating (seat numbers displayed on the booking website do not apply).

‘A powerhouse performer whose playing combines strength with beauty.’
― The Guardian on pianist Dejan Lazić
