Manchester Collective: Transfigured Night at Islington Mill, Chapel Street 11 February 2017 Tickets from £12.00 — Book now

Manchester Collective opens its debut season with a diverse programme at one of the one of the city’s least obvious concert halls: Islington Mill. The new performing arts organisation is equally at home tackling classical masterpieces and avant-garde repertoire – and will be performing throughout the UK in 2017, as well as streaming its performances online for free.

This hometown concert kicks off with Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber’s Battalia à 10 – a depiction of drunks singing folk songs in a pub – which is complemented by John Cage’s excellent String Quartet in Four Parts, plus extracts from The Fairy-Queen by Henry Purcell. Taverner’s Quemadmodum and Schoenberg’s string sextet Transfigured Night round off what promises to be an exciting debut.
