The Music that Made Manchester
Saturday February 9th 2019 marks the launch of Manchester Baroque, a new musical group for Manchester. It also marks the launch of a project to re-create the 1744/5 concert series of Manchester’s “Musick”, perhaps the earliest documented classical music series performed in the city. Over the next two years Manchester Baroque will explore the repertoire of Manchester Musick’s programmes of 1744/5.
The launch concert takes place at 7.30 pm in St. Ann’s Church in the City Centre and will comprise of music by Vivaldi, Corelli, all ending with Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto Number 5.
This is a fitting way to start the life of Manchester Baroque, Manchester’s newest ensemble dedicated to playing on original instruments.
Manchester Baroque is committed to bringing new insights and ideas to this old music, the performance of which prefigures the growth of the great industrial city Manchester was to become.
