Old Instruments, New Ideas.
Manchester Baroque is a new musical group dedicated to performing the music of the 17th and 18th centuries on period instruments. True to the traditions of Manchester as the world’s original modern city, we will create concerts that are more than just music; helping audiences to understand our vision, creating talking points, but above all playing in a style that brings this music back to life. Manchester Baroque will be led by Dr Pauline Nobes, one of Europe’s foremost specialists in historical performance, who is undertaking new research into Manchester’s musical history.
