Spine-tingling Elgar, Mozart 40 and a Stradivarius...

Witness Manchester Camerata’s first performance in the newly refurbished RNCM Concert Hall in a dynamic programme that sees Bizet’s less familiar masterpiece, Symphony in C, paired with two of the greatest pieces of classical music.

Mesmerising Principal Cello, Hannah Roberts, performs Elgar's elegiac Cello Concerto no.1 – considered to be one of the most popular concerti of the 20th century. Mozart’s penultimate symphony (no.40), brings the evening to a dramatic conclusion.

One of the world's most respected dealers of fine stringed instruments, J&A Beare has generously loaned Hannah a rare Stradivarius cello for the evening.  The 1696 instrument is one of the very few cellos by the master rediscovered in the last 50 years, although the instrument may have been in London since the nineteenth century.

‘The levels of animation and musical energy are so high in the Camerata - we want people to have a vivid live experience every time.’
– Hannah Roberts, Principal Cello
