About The Show

“A voyage of the soul... conceived as a kind of parable on our troubled contemporary world”.

- George Crumb
Join Manchester Collective as they journey to the heart of darkness, performing two string quartets by masters of the craft, conjuring up twin visions of a world tearing itself apart.

Black Angels is a show about darkness, but also, about light. From George Crumb’s ethereal “God Music” to the unforgettable melodies of “Death and the Maiden”, this is a programme full of arrestingly unique and beautiful work.

This tour represents a radical departure from the world of traditional classical recitals - audiences will experience Black Angels in gothic cathedrals, major concert halls, and in a one off midnight set at an internationally heralded nightclub, to be announced in October 2018.

"Intimate, immersive musical experiences without parallel"
- Bachtrack

"One of the most important ensembles currently bringing classical music to UK audiences"
- Northern Soul



At The Door

Manchester Collective

Manchester Collective is redefining how a new generation of audiences engage with the arts in the UK. Recently described by the Yorkshire Post as a "powerful, moving, & extraordinary" addition to the UK music scene, Manchester Collective produces world-class, innovative, and outward facing musical experiences for new audiences across Britain. Their thrilling live performances, allied with daring programming and a brazen approach to convention, have seen the Collective reach more than 200,000 people across their first two seasons.

In December 2017, Manchester Collective was appointed Ensemble in Residence at The Stoller Hall, a new flagship concert hall for Manchester. In 2018, Manchester Collective has been featured by publications including The Strad Magazine (twice), Bachtrack (“intimate, immersive experiences without parallel”), and Seen and Heard International (“an astonishing evening”). Classic FM and the BBC have also featured the work of the Collective on an ongoing basis, and in March 2018, MC presented a groundbreaking two hour classical broadcast on NTS Radio.

Recent performing highlights include concert debuts at Kings Place in London, a PRSF supported tour of the Collective’s latest major commission, 100 DEMONS, (featuring electronic musician Vessel, cellist and Radiohead collaborator Oliver Coates, and music by Daniel Elms), and a packed performance of Messiaen’s “Quartet for the End of Time” in The Stoller Hall, broadcast live on Facebook to over 10,000 viewers.
